A few weeks ago I shared this post of the wood tray that I repurposed. It turned out great! I also had this picture frame in my garage that I picked up at the local thrift shop. This is not my decorating style, but I loved the detail in the frame and the center piece with the chair on it actually pops out.
A little chalk paint, a wooden word and I turned this into a great farmhouse piece for my home!

So this is the before pic…the frame measures about 18 by 18 inches.
I found the word “home” at Michaels craft store. It measures about 7 inches across.
I used Americana Décor Acrylic Chalky Finish Paint in Everlasting White to paint the frame and the insert piece. I painted 3 coats, making sure to let the paint dry thoroughly between coats. (If you’re impatient like me, a hair dryer on warm helps to speed up the drying process. 😉 ) I painted the word “home” with 2 coats of FolkArt Home Décor Chalk Paint in Maui Sand. Then, using Maui Sand, I dry brushed the frame and insert piece to bring out some of the detail. I put the insert piece into the frame and glued the word to the insert piece using clear E6000 adhesive. I sealed the piece with a light coat of matte sealing spray.
And here is the finished project. I love the way it turned out!
Keep your eyes open – look around your house, in the attic or garage – or visit your local thrift shops. You may be surprised at what you find that you can spruce up for your home. I would love to see what you repurpose!
