I was cleaning the house this past weekend and really needed an updated centerpiece for the dining room table. I can't stand to have the table sitting empty and I was bored with my previous centerpiece so I rooted around in the garage where I keep all my extra decorating items and found the painted wine bottles I use for a variety of things and these great frames I had from Micheal's that were just 5 bucks. A light bulb went off and I thought I'd make a framed centerpiece with the wine bottles. So out came the spray paint and ran out to the yard to put a quick coat of ivory paint on the frame and then sanded some of the paint off to give it an older look.
So simple and quick to do!
I used Krylon Almond in satin finish for the frame and then sanded it down after it was dry. I also gathered up a few twigs that were in my yard from a recent storm and lightly coated them with a little white spray paint so they weren't just a drab gray color. I wanted to use them for filler and this coat of paint helped brighten them up a little bit.
I placed the frame on the table and then centered the bottles and added the painted twigs and was done. Can't get easier than that!
Who knew? A little paint on the twigs snazzed them right up.
These frames were such a bargain at 5 dollars and are super easy to paint any color. Because the base color was black it was perfect for sanding some of the color off to give it an old feeling.
I used a sanding block to sand off some of the paint on the details of the frame and some of the edges. I love doing this to painted items to make them look a little worn.
Perfect for the dining room table!
