Tutorial: Painted Picture Frames

Start by painting one thin, even coat of light blue chalk paint onto the frames.  Be careful to fill all of the nooks and crannies, but don’t let paint pool in the corners.  Let the light blue paint dry.

Then, using a dry brush, paint a coat of white chalk paint.  Not sure what I mean by dry brush?  Dip the brush in paint and then tap off excess on another surface (like a paper towel).  The idea is to paint the white, while letting the light blue poke through.

Let the paint dry completely, and you’re good to go.
