Updating a Tired Old Frame

Have an old frame that needs a color facelift? 
Let Dixie Belle Mineral Chalk Paints work their magic.

Using Sea Glass and The Gulf with a light swipe of Best Dang Wax Clear, at the end; I was able to transform this tag sale frame for my next DIY project.

Here is the frame, after a wipe-down with a damp cloth.

A light coat of Sea Glass with a chip brush.

I used a dried, used, chip brush to scrape off back to the original color; in just a few places. 
(It's easier when the paint has dried to the tacky stage).

Haha, I forgot to remove the sticker from the sale.

I mixed a little of the Sea Glass into The Gulf for a custom color.

I used the same used and dried brush to scrape on the new custom color in places.

When it completely dried I used a soft paper towel to add a light coat of the wax, wiping off the excess. It can be buffed to a great shine.

Here you can see where I used the leftover custom paint.
This will be part of a DIY project you will see in a future post. Hint: think office organizing!
