Valentine's Day Frame

Don't throw away that old, boring frame...refurbish it!  I took an ugly, cream colored frame that was worn down to the wood in places and with a little paint made it into a fun Valentine to my favorite nephew. 

Step 1.  Sanding.  Some frame are too smooth for the paint to stick to, so sanding is very important (and sometimes messy) step.  Any sandpaper will do, but do it over a trashcan or outside.

Step 2.  Paint.  Any color, any brand.  Be creative.

Step 3.  Stencil or free hand your lettering, design, etc. onto the frame in pencil and then paint over it.
