Easy How to Primitive Frames

Here's how to make your own primitive look picture frames from old wooden frames. A great prim/country look!
Difficulty: Easy

Things You'll Need:

  • Old wood picture frames, any/all sizes
  • Spray paint, any/all primitive colors
  • Fine/Med sand paper
  • Old newspaper
  1. Step 1
    Get old wood picture frames from garage sales, flea markets, thrift stores, anywhere ya can find them cheap! Most of mine were'nt more than 25 cents....LOL. You could buy new ones, but, WHY???? As far as the spray paint, again, I use the cheapo stuff at my local dollar store. Basic primitive colors, like rust, black, white and a darker green. Any sandpaper, fine to med works good.
  2. Step 2
    Weather permitting, it's best to do this outside, but, if not, just make sure the area you are working in is well venilated. Spread old newspaper on a flat surface, large enough to hold the frame you are working on. After shaking the paint can well, spray evenly on frame, holding far enough away from frame so the paint does'nt "run". One even coat is plenty. Best to work on one frame at a time. Let dry completly, usually 15-20 min.
  3. Step 3
    When the newly painted frame is completely dry, using the sandpaper, gently rub at different areas to sand off some paint, don't do to large an area at any one place. Maybe a bit on top, a bit on opposite side at the bottom, a corner or two. This gives the frame a worn look. Dust frame off, and, that's it!
