Distressed Vintage Upcycled Photo Frame

Hi Everyone,
I am Savithri from All Things Beautiful, with yet another simple upcycle project. I love Upcycling and I love Vintage. So I tried to combine both together for the Monthly Challenge. Take a look below for details.

Distressed Vintage Upcycled Photo Frame 1

I used an old photo frame and created a vintage distressed effect just 2 shades of paints. I wanted to use this frame in my craft room with a nice quote. Earlier I used to try writing and painting the quotes by hand. I am not very good at that. But now, I I have this magic product Reactive Foils and Gilding Flakes from Craftangles that will easily do the job.

Here’s a look at the Vintage Photo Frame I upcycled.
