DIY – Frame with Paint Chip Art

A Frame with Flare

We’ve been finding numerous ways to use paint chips in our DIY projects from Halloween costumes to Christmas ornaments. This time we created paint chip art work for a vintage frame I puchased at the Rosebowl flea market in Pasadena. I wanted to create a way to display bold colors in a frame without more brush strokes. And voila, a fun display where you can add a message with an eraseable marker (that can be changed as often as you like) for those entering or leaving the house.

Watch our DIY Diva series for the process:


Bought frame from flea market for $5

Sanded and then stained the frame with Cabot Pecan satin finish.

Created a color block design using paint chips (free).

Had glass cut to fit frame approx. $10.

Bought backing and easel back for frame approx. $10 from Aaron Brothers.

Added message with an erasable marker—You can change the message as often as you want.
