Sorry, but once again, I whipped through this before I thought about a before. The frame what originally white.
I used the homemade paint recipe from the Farragoz course. I just kept mixing, and experimenting with different shades until I got the look I wanted. I used gold for the highlights, and distressed the finish.
The chalkboard is an older chalkboard that I aged further with a sanding sponge.
I think I like it.
