Then I measured out the spaces for the stripes.
And taped them off using blue painter’s tape. Thanks to Pamela’s suggestion, I marked the sections that I was not painting to avoid accidentally painting in the wrong place.
Next I painted the black stripes.
I pulled off the tape to reveal my perfectly misplace stripes. I blame it on my kids who kept bugging me wanting to help. I actually kind of like it!
Using a sanding block, I distressed the stripes and the edges.
Because of the dimensions of the frame and the orientation I wanted, I had to paint the stripes against the grain, so it made the distressing a little difficult since I didn’t want to bleed the black into the white.
To attach the Dollar Store black wood frame, I simply hammered a single nail into the cabinet door and hung the smaller frame.
I’m so please with the results, and double pleased that I finally finished a project. Go team ME!
