Martha Paint and Vinyl Makeover!

Michaels Rub Ons
Mr. Chocolate recently cleaned out his den and gifted me some framed pieces he replaced with other stuff. That plus a trip to Michaels 2 for $3 section gave me an idea!
I am in love with the Martha Stewart line of paints by Plaid. This frame was a plain black and I wanted to age it up a bit so I used Martha’s Satin finish Gray Wolf and dry brushed it.

Nice and aged looking now! I also love rub-ons and Michaels has a whole new collection of them in their 2 for $3 section. I couldn’t resist these cutlery images:
Martha Stewart Satin Dry Brush
I cut the large fork, knife, and spoon, and put those on three sides of the mat from the picture that had been in the frame.  Then I chose a piece of scrapbook paper from my stash, and cut a cup image using the Wall Décor and More cartridge on my Expression. I cut the detailed image in brown and the shadow image in black. I put the shadow image on the paper and the detail image on top of the glass (slightly offset) to give it more depth.
Wall Decor and More Cup
Then using the same cartridge, I cut the phrase “café” in black and put this on top of the glass as well.
And now I have a new piece of art for my kitchen for the cost of about $1.50 since I had most everything on hand!
