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.
