  1. Those frames are beautiful. I love different shades of blue you painted them. You have inspired me to look around and see where I can add a gallery wall! I am pinning this to my crafts board. We miss you at the Celebrate Your Story! link party. Here is this week's link if you want to come and join us again! http://celebrateanddecorate.com/celebrate-story-32/

    1. Hi Kristina! I used a variety of different paint colors and brands. But, I did dry brush Country Chic Paint's Belt Buckle metallic cream over most of them. You can really see it over the blush pink frame. On other frames I distressed as I painted which means I purposely didn't paint in certain areas or painted lighter in areas so that it looked worn or aged without even having to go back over and use sand paper or a wet cloth. I hope that makes sense and answered your question!
