When I transformed my master bedroom I wanted a unique way to display and find my earrings. Using a yard sale frame, some metallic paint and chicken wire this DIY project went from boring to fab!

The frame was $1 at a yard sale and I bought it because I loved the intricate design. I wanted a burnished gold look for the frame to blend in with the rest of the bedroom and I also needed to paint over the canvas strip around the inside of the frame.

I used Modern Masters Gold Rush (semi opaque) ME658 for the first coat over the entire frame. I just used a disposable foam craft brush to apply.

I then used a coat of Modern Masters ME221 Warm Silver (opaque) and this worked much better!

    I did this with screen using 2 frames putting hinges so that it opened so I could put my studs on it. Looks and works great..

      Bottom frame is screwed into studs, top frame attached to bottom frame with hinges so that you can open it and have hooks behind it to hang necklaces.

    I did the same thing years ago, but with copper screen. I had an odd shaped frame that fit a narrow spot in my bedroom.

    Great score on the frame. Thanks for including the paint manufacturer and colors as well. I am a "frame and mirror freak" and always on the hunt for great ones at tag sales and have yet to find a great gold leaf color for painting.
