I finally invested in a few more Annie Sloan paint colors the other day. I'm typically drawn to the blues and greens which you would probably guess if you've had a visit to my vintage cottage shop. Duck Egg had been my front runner until I discovered Provence...ahhh smitten I am. I just happened to have this large collection of vintage frames begging to be painted and transformed from their various dated original golden state. With a little hand sander I distressed the details of each and allowed just a tad bit of that gold to peek through...the result...shabby goodness. I had painted my kitchen a similar hue just a few months ago. You'll see, when I get on a kick with a color it's all in or nothing. So here you have the unveiling of my frame collection, the first of many treasures to be transformed Provence style. If your feeling that shabby vintage vibe visit me at Swede13 Cottage...weathered elegance for the home.
Enjoy the day!
