Keeping Calm With The Dollar Store & Thrift Shop Candlestick Makeover

I'd seen projects done with these dollar store frames and knew I wanted to play with them. So painted one w/ cream acrylic paint ( unintended goodness...the stain from the frame mixed with the paint to give it a pearly finish you can't see in the pic) and rub and buffed ( silver) the raised areas. Painted and glazed a candlestick I was willing to pay a couple of bucks for at a thrift shop but ended up being .82 cents! Glued ( grrr Gorilla glue bubbled but you can't see) a wood plaque I found @ GWill .Painted and did a harlequin design on top.

I love the frame! The white color being distressed really looks good. Who couldn't be calm with this in their home? Thanks for sharing.
