Shabby chic style wood frame with layered and washed paint treatments. Embellished with wood cutouts.

.

I found some old wood slats left in a garage when we moved into our house. So I sawed, glued and color-washed them with watered down acrylic paints in barn red, country blue and antique white for a finished but worn and aged effect. Attached to this blue-washed frame front are primitive wood cutouts - worn yellow moon, red heart, blue star and a yellow bird. Finally, all is lightly sanded for an antique effect.



The frame can stand or be hung with an attached black easel back. The easel back has a hinged opening and acrylic picture covering (See sample photo which in this case would be blue wood and black easel back).



The heart framed here is hand-cut and assembled as a layered collage on handmade paper and is included. The heart and handmade paper background are earth-friendly, made from junk mail and discarded magazines. You can replace the collage with your own photos or picture.



Picture opening is approximately 3 1/4" x 4 3/8". Overall size is 7" x 5 3/4"."
