Vintage Picture Frame

Hi, Everyone

Just a little something I wiped up and wanted to share with you all. This is another one of my yard sale finds and it only cost me $1. There will be a part two to this picture frame and I will post it in a couple of days, so make sure to stop by.

I took the gold paint and I brushed along the edges.
This is the frame with just the coat of gold paint only.  
In this step I used black paint and using a dry brushing method I painted along the top of the curvy part of the frame. I also used my finger to rub the black paint in all the nooks and cranny. 
Close up where I applied the black paint.  
The finish product! 
I just love how the frame turned out and I hope you are inspired to create a frame with the same faux vintage look. I Love to hear from you so drop me a line.

Have a great week and keep on creating!
