{Guest Post: Meegan from What Meegan Makes} Distressing a Frame

Good Morning all of you I Should Be Mopping The Floor readers!! I am Meegan from What Meegan Makes and I am honored to be guest posting for Kristi today! Isn't she great? I just love her!!

   
 I am a vintage loving, grand baby kissing, beach going, shell finding, paint hungry kind of woman, and I love to blog about all of these things-sometimes even combined!   Today I would like to share a small and simple project with a big impact. This is my living room.

 
I really like how everything pulled together. BUT, I wanted a frame around the book page wreath.   While out thrifting one day...
I found a frame!!
Yep, $7 and BRAND new!!
 
To prepare my new frame I mixed various green craft paints and antique white.

After "semi" painting the frame (meaning I didn't cover it perfectly-many areas are an uneven thickness of paint), I sanded it with Medium 100 grit sand paper. I am SO excited!!


After sanding, I hung my new "pretty" in our living room!! It is just how I pictured!!

Yay!! Not too shabby, wouldn't you say??? I think she completes this wall. Don't you love when that happens??? Me, too!!
Thanks for letting me share my new treasure with you! It has been a real pleasure to be with you today. Thanks again, Kristi!! It has been a BLAST!!
I hope you will visit me sometime over at What Meegan Makes. I am also on Pinterest, Facebook, Hometalk and Stumble Upon. I would love for join me.
Make it a great day!!

Meegan is one of my favorite friends in the bloggy world. I'm so honored to have her here today... literally just a few days after her son's wedding {I wish I could bottle her energy}. She always has such sweet things to share and kind comments to leave everywhere. She's one of those people who I just know we'd be BFFs in real life if we lived closer. 

Be sure to stop by What Meegan Makes and check out her awesomeness for yourself. Some of my favorite "Meegan Projects" include:




Thanks so much for being here today, Meegan! Now go take a nap after your wild weekend!
