I created this quick post to show you a tip on customizing a picture frame for this DIY Mermaid Art. In this post I’ll show you an awesome little trick for a white picture frame makeover. This is a great way to use an old frame you already have.
Maybe your picture frame was like mine, not in bad shape, just outdated-in need of a makeover. It was raw wood and kinda blah. It didn’t match the contemporary vibe I wanted for my artwork.
1. First, give your frame a quick wipe off with some soap and water.
2. Lightly sand with a medium grit or 100 grit sandpaper.
3. Paint your picture frame white with acrylic paint. Mine was a little too shiny, so I sanded it with a 220 grit sanding block afterwards.
4. Lastly, use a Sharpie marker to draw a line in the grooves. You can use any color Sharpie that matches your artwork. The great thing is if you get out of the lines a little just have a cotton swab or tissue with IPA on it handy to wipe it off.
