Rustic Coin Frame



Do you have a can of old coins hanging around? I did. I used them to bring a boring frame to life!

What you need:

– Old chunky frame
– 4-5 acrylic paint colors
– sandpaper
– assorted old coins
– Liquid Fusion® Clear Urethane Glue

First you want to take a chunky wood frame and distress it with a meat tenderizer, etc. Choose four-five colors of contrasting acrylic paint colors and apply them TWICE, one, by one, letting each coat dry in between layers. Now use the sandpaper over the whole thing – you want to bring up those different layers of paint colors. Distress the frame more and sand more. Think you are done? Sand again. OK, now glue on the coins. You’re done, mama!

Love & light,
