DIY Industrial Farmhouse Drop Cloth Frame

Drop cloths have to be one of the most versatile and cheapest materials to use when DIY~ing! I love using it in my projects as it can turn something so drabΒ into something so fab! Β Using some drop cloth and a dated picture frame, inspiration struck and I decided to make a DIY Industrial Farmhouse Drop Cloth Frame.

If you have been following me for a little while, you will know that I am right in the middle of giving my whole house a fresh new look and in the process trying to use what I already have. Not only will this save a tonne of money but will also stop it ending up as landfill! I have already given some of my old frames a new farmhouse look Β and enjoyed it so much I thought that I would try it again with another frame. Using the backing from the picture frame, lay flat onto the drop cloth. Then cut out a piece of the drop cloth, leaving about a 2cm extra around the frame.

Then stencil on the numbers using a spouncerΒ and black paint and leave to dry. I didn’t worry to much about the blotchy effect when stencilling as I wanted it to have an aged look. Β If you wanted more of a matte look just apply more paint. You can also find another project of how I used drop cloth and a sharpieΒ to turn an old door into a Farmhouse Hook.

Taking the frame, paint 3 coats of chalk paint letting it dry completely in between each coat.

Now for my favourite part…..distressing!! Grab your sander and go to town with your sander until you have the desired effect. If you’re like me you won’t mind being a little heavy handed with the sander πŸ˜‰

For more distressing tips, I let the cat out of the bag on which way I think it is the easiest way to distress furniture from my years of painting πŸ™‚
