I had this project in my mind for a few months but I couldn’t find good frame anywhere. I was visiting my local second-hand store almost every day… I didn’t want to spend a lot of money for a new frame so used one was the best option for me. And one day I found what I was looking for 😊
DIY Project. Upcycle Your Old Frame Into Trendy Bookshelf.
Step 1 - Gold color was wonderful but didn’t match my space so I decided to change it to silver. I put two coats of Annie Sloan Graphite chalk paint.
Step 2 – I put silver Pebeo gilding wax on my frame. I start with a little amount of it as it is very efficient.
Step 3 – I polished it with 600 grit sand paper. Thanks to this you can see wood structure on my frame.
Step 4 – My husband (handy man) build a shelf. He used for it melamine boards from Home Depot.
Step 5 - We glued frame to shelf using “No More Nails” glue from Home Depot
