Dollar Store Frame Makeovers!

Like many of you, I love the dollar store.  I can't resist the the swirly, ornate plastic frames and mirrors they sell because I know that with just a little coat of chalky finish paint, they're going to look like a million bucks!  Add some varnish and creme wax and they'll look vintage and beautiful.  All that glamour for one dollar!  Who can resist it?  Cluster several of them together and you'll have a amazing wall for less than 15 dollars.  BTW, my favorite brand is Americana Decor from DecoArt.  Amazing quality and terrific colors.  Have fun and Make Your Mark!

Paint them all the same color and create an amazing wall

  1. Thanks Mark! There's so many products out there that I have a hard time figuring out what to use. So frustrating, so I'm glad you spelled it out for me.

  2. Thank you for the excellent tutorial, Mark! I have been wanting to try something like this and now I will!

    1. It's easy peasy Carol! Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  3. Love it! Where did you get the frames?
