Make beautiful frames with Vintage Decor Paint and Wax from #marthastewartcrafts paint frames

1) spray paint frame white 2) mix up some Burnt Umber craft paint with a little bit of black. Then I added water till it was about the consistency of thick ink. I brushed it on in small sections, then immediately wiped it off with a soft cloth.
