Autumn frame diy!

Hi there! Hope you are having a lovely week!

This week I wanted to make a Autumn frame for my hallway.

I searched around for the perfect frame and I found one I liked in poundland, but you know me I love the shabby chic look so I painted it with some Annie sloan chalk paint and waxed it. It needed around 3 coats and then a thin layer on top.

It looks super cute in the hallway, and is making me look forward to all things autumn.

If you would like to make one, the print I got was free from lollyjaneblog, so this craft was super cheap to make. Here is the link for the print:

  1. I painted my box with two coats of Annie Sloan chalk paint and let those fully dry.
  2. I waxed the box to seal and protect the wood.

3. I then had fun arranging my letters and stuck them on with the glue gun and arranged my decorations too to see what design I liked the most. Simple.
