The painting/distressing is the easy/fun part. Making the frames is a bit tougher. If you want to know how to do that, see my aforementioned long-winded explanation here.
Email me if you have questions/suggestions. I get pretty overwhelmed in the paint department and end up just choosing one of the first few I see. I would be interested to hear of some paint combos that have worked together on something you own/made.
|Blue over black w/glaze|
|Purple crackle over green w/glaze (for my purple-loving sister)|
|Greenish/blue crackle over black w/dark stain|
