Transforming a picture frame! {DIY}

I have had this beautiful poppy picture for a few years now.
I decided to transform the picture frame.

You see one time back a few years ago, a friend from Rate my space gifted
 this beautiful poppy picture to me. She was so kind and thoughtful to do this, and to be honest I was blown away by it.

It was during a transition time that I was getting rid of the roos, and doing my kitchen  all poppies...

I had the poppies for a while, but some how or another the Roo's made their way back.

Terrible picture, this was before BLOGGING.
As you can see the frame is gorgeous as is the print.
I remember when she gifted me this, she said " Debbie it is yours to do what you want, you can change the print out when you want, change the frame color, etc".
Therefore, being a creative gal that she is, I know she will not mind what I did.
which btw, I emailed her, and she was in her usual down to earth fashion, pretty much saying I don't give a darn, I expected you to change it sometime or another LOL!
Thank you Lisa:)

I of course kept the print aside and  I am sure use it again someday.

{Noticed I stenciled the table too?}
Things always have a way of recycling around my house.

 {I went back to Walmart to get the other style lampshade, last one on the shelf!}

Close up of frame.
I painted it with antique white, paint and primer mixed in one by Glidden. I also used a dark wax.
Then I heavily distressed it.

This is the other side of my blogs and blabs area.
Our loft over looks the living room area, Hello family, I can see YOU!

I am still working on the other side, and NOT coming along as I would have liked.
There is always tomorrow.

WOW us Wednesdays

White Wednesday

Organize and decorate everything
Show and tell Blue cricket design
We did it Wednesday
Whatever goes Wednesday

Look what I made

I can't believe I'm the first today. I for one am glad to see the ROOS. But, I do love me some poppies. So we will call it a draw here. Great job on the frame and wonderful use of it too.... Now, about that last picture from upstairs. I thought I knew every little corner of your charming house, but this puts it all into a new perspective for me now. Great shot. Oh, and let me know if I will pass for the copycat.

I think the frame around the clock is a great look. I too keep trying to change things up. My Roos are a pretty new addiction for me!

Well, DAH Deb... silly me. I need to read the directions. Of course, I may try something new for the real holiday copycat. Let's just call my posting a highlight of things to come over there and a reminder to your parties. I really need to slow down and read a bit more. You are the best and do keep me on my toes.

Nice job on the frame! I love the geometry of the circle inside the square. Looks great! Thanks for sharing.

That corner is looking great, Debbie! Love the new look to the frame. When I got my shade at Walmart it was the last one on the shelf, too. I think they only put out one at a time and everyone thinks they got the last one! : )

Love how you transformed that frame. It looks completely different. I thought you used chalk paint until I read further. It looks so good framing that cute clock!

One thing at a time ;) I think we get a few too many balls up in the air sometimes and there is only one US! I know I'm going ten different directions right now. LOL
The frame sure looks pretty and I love how you can still be in on what the fam is doing while your working =) Such a great space!

I love the frame and the clock -So you just used the antique white paint? no glaze? oh and the lamp shades are so pretty . I just saw a antique letter rug on ballard that reminded me of the lamp shades.

Wow, Debbie! I LOVE the clock in the frame!!! It looks awesome the way you redid the frame too. Great looking corner with the stenciled table and new lamp shade.
Those covered chairs in the "old" poppy picture are really neat...

I love the new look of the frame. It's funny because I was just looking at one of my own frames and thought I should paint it. It seems rather heavy looking in my bedroom. Now I think I will. Just need the time!
