There is nothing better than the smell of a fresh pie baking in your kitchen! One of my fondest memories as a little one was waking up to the smell of my granny baking fresh apple pies for the family to enjoy. They were also fresh crisp apples that granny would walk straight out her back door and into her apple orchid to pick off the trees. Granny Smith was always her go to apple when making apple pie and I think I have followed in her footsteps. Sharing a simple Fresh Pies Baked Daily Farmhouse Frame inspired by my very much missed Granny.
Fresh Pies Baked Daily Farmhouse Frame
- Old Frame – I used a 9 1/2″ x 7 1/2″ frame for this project
- Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint – Farmhouse White
- Miss Mustard Seed Bonding Agent
- Paint Brush
- Miss Mustard Seed Beeswax
- 120 Grit Sandpaper and sander
- Vinyl lettering or stickers – I used a design that I made using my Silhouette Cameo Machine.
Step 1 – Mix up equal parts Farmhouse White, Water and Bonding Agent. I used the rest of the leftovers from my Garden Bench Project. Let the paint sit and combine while you prepare your frame. Remove the glass from the frame and give it a good clean using Windex.
Step 2 – Gently mix your paint and begin your first coat. Let dry. And repeat until you have the desired coverage. For this frame, I gave it 3 coats.
Step 3 – Take your sander and distress to your liking. For tips on how to distress this post has some great tips. Apply wax with a soft lint free cloth to seal.
Step 4 – Removing the transfer tape from the Vinyl sticker apply to the cleaned glass. Using an old store card burnish the design to ensure is has all adhered to the glass. Gently remove the backing paper. Insert back into the frame and if a little loose use some E6000 Glue to hold the glass in securely.
And there you have a super simple Fresh Pies Baked Daily Farmhouse Frame to add some country charm to your kitchen! For another project inspired by my sweet Granny, be sure to pop on over and grab your Free Apple Orchard Printable.
