Frame Wreath Decor

I recently took a trip to Indianapolis to scower one of the antique trails with my beautiful aunt! I haven’t been there, and she brought it to my attention that this awesome place existed. These towns have antique stores after antique stores. It was really a fun time. It’s called Antique Alley  

There has been a bare space in my living room that I’ve been dying to get something put up, but I was also itching to create something. I found the awesome frame! It’s size is large- 41X27 …..and so perfect for the space.


Such awesome detail-


The detail of this frame is so gorgeous, I almost didn’t want to touch it. However, there were only a couple spots I couldn’t live with bare so away I went with folklore sheepskin chalk paint. I love this color so much. The bottle is deceiving because it almost looks like a yellow, but really it’s an off white- to me anyway.

This is just one coat ^. I used a smaller paint  brush (you can see it in my first picture- not the waxing brush which I didn’t use). I went back over with another coat and got between the cracks. It was really easy with the smaller brush. I decided not to do any waxing, this time anyway.


I know this picture sucks, but isn’t it just beautiful?! Ugh, I’m so in love with how it turned out.

I then went to the nearest craft store and bought a fall wreath. I know, I know…it’s too early right- but I just had to buy it because I thought it was so pretty.


I also bought burlap because I wanted to hang the wreath from the frame, so it appeared in the middle. Here is the final product:

I really love it, and goes so perfectly in our space. These awful pictures don’t do it justice.

Stay tuned! I’m currently working on another amazing picture frame that I’m turning into a chalkboard!
