How to antique something with very little effort! Yep! I thought I would try a technique that I heard about on Trading Spaces years ago. I bought these pictures for my hubby at a thrift store here in town for $7(for both). The frames are great as you can see! The pictures are of old WWII planes and bombers.
1st I took the pictures glass panels from their frames. Then, I painted lightly over the frame with flat white paint. Just before it got completely dry, I wiped it off with a paper towel. Then, I used stain that we had from a home project. I got a rag and dipped it into the stain and wiped it on the frame. I didn't cover it completely but just at random.
