Repurposed Picture Frames with Modern Masters Paint!

sponsored post


On Monday I shared my #ModernMasters project and a Giveaway that  I did for the campaign.  I showed you picture frames that I painted with the champagne metallic color and mentioned I would share another project that I was going to do with the pretty painted frames.

I loved how these frames turned out, but I wanted them to be something more, so here is what I made with them.  

Repurposed Picture Frames


When I laid the smaller frame inside the large frame, this is where the idea to put them together came from.  

Old outdated frames


This is what they looked like before I used the awesome Modern Masters Metallic Paint on them.

I primed the frames using Zinsser Bulls Eye 123 primer.

The next step was to paint them with Modern Masters Champagne Metallic Paint.  Once they were completely dry, I mixed the Modern Masters black pearl paint with a glaze.  I applied the glaze on both frames and wiped off with a dry cloth.  The glazing technique allows you to wipe off a little or a lot so you get the aging effect.  I love how glazing gives the pieces a deeper color and it enhances the edges of the frames.  If you would like to see the black pearl paint color, check out my drop leaf table that I shared with you on Monday.  

adding material to the picture frames


I cut a piece of wood to fit in the back of the large picture frame and painted it with a black spray paint.  I then sprayed the wood piece with spray adhesive and applied the fabric to the wood.  

adding a mirror to the picture frame


I cut a piece of mirror to fit inside the smaller picture frame and attached the small frame to the fabric covered wood using screws.  Once I attached the smaller frame, I placed the wood piece inside the large frame and used picture frames accessories to hold the back in place.  I attached a hanger-on the back and she is ready to hang on the wall.

  1. Could you tell me how you applied the metallic paint? Roller or brush?
    I have a small nook area that I want to paint with the metallic, but it’s too small to use a roller.
