I painted it with Annie Sloan chalk paint actually. Then I glazed over the top. I had read a warning that if you rub the glaze off to hard, it'll take your paint off too. When this happened accidentally, exposing some of the original gold, I loved it so much, I went with it and did it on purpose! I added a felt flower and I am so pleased with how it turned out. I plan to stencil our last name initial on burlap and staple inside the frame.
So, have you ever found treasure in the trash? Have you ever glazed anything? This was my first glazing project, but I'm sure there will definitely be more in the future!
