Distressed Painted Frame

Distressed Painted Frame

Give your home decor an antique feel with this Distressed Painted Frame. This distressed paint technique is easy enough for beginners to try. You will learn how to distress painted wood by testing it out on this picture frame. After this painting craft, you could even move up to bigger wooden objects with other distressed painting techniques. It is better to start small with DIY home decor than to mess up a larger decoration or piece of furniture because no one has the time or money to do that.
