Welcome to my NEW BLOG!

For many years my projects could be found at my previous blog - www.fatcatcreations.blogspot.com. Since my business has evolved and is now known as Cindi McGee - Behind These Eyes™ instead of Cindi Bisson - Fat Cat Creations - I thought this was the perfect time to launch a new blog. Since I've been on this creative journey for over 16 years - I have a LOT of project links out there in cyberworld! If you are looking for a particular project you have found on Pinterest, Facebook, FaveCrafts, HomeTalk, Twitter, etc. and the link is not working for you, please feel free to email me at cdjb11@yahoo.com and I'll be sure to get you the new link to the instructions. Have a creative day and remember to DARE TO BE DIFFERENT!

Faux Weathered Driftwood Frame


It’s easy to create a faux weathered driftwood effect and turn a worn out thrift store frame into a beachy keen decorative frame for your home with just 3 colors of chalky finish paint and a few minutes.   

Materials: 

Frame 
DecoArt® Americana® Decor™ Chalky Finish Paint - Yesteryear, Relic, Everlasting 
Paintbrushes








Instructions:

Paint entire frame with Yesteryear (light grey) chalky finish paint. Let dry.  


Lightly dry brush painted frame with Relic (charcoal grey) chalky finish paint.  Let dry. 


Lightly dry brush over first two colors of paint with Everlasting (white) chalky finish paint.  Let dry. 


That’s it!  Quick & easy and it really mimics the look of worn, weathered beach wood or driftwood.
