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.

    Love this for all those dangle earrings that usually wind up in a box or tray. The fact that you can make is as ornate as you want is great. Would also make a wonderful gift. Nice job.
