I have such an Easy Plastic Frame Makeover for this month’s Thrift Store Décor Makeover-it happens the second Wednesday every month! I love it because it makes me step away from the saw and the drill.
Plastic thrift store picture frame
This seriously IS the ugliest brown <plastic> frame EVER! But, it was only $2 from Joey’s booth at Vendors’ Village.

Paint plastic frame
I think it’s a pretty frame, it’s just that shade of brown is so sad looking. If you’re loving the brown, sorry!
I used a batch of my diy chalky paint primer in Polished Pearl on a white day. I tend to have “black” days and “white” days, where I’ll just grab random items if I still have paint in my cup. This day there were FIVE white projects in the works using my Homeright Finish Max.
Optional: add wax
I used some clear wax, and then just a smidgeon of Dark Umber wax from Heirloom Traditions Paint to make the details stand out a little.
That’s it! I’m calling it d.o.n.e. And guess what?
I put it in my booth (#303 at Vendors’ Village in Louisville KY) and it sold the very next day for $12. I had decided that if it didn’t sell empty, I would bring it home and put a chalkboard in it. Lucky me!
Did you find it?
Would you be happy with a $10 ROI for a cheap $2 frame? Do you think it needed a little change of color?
