Thank you Bonnie and sisters' for all the great Ideas that you have posted from your Drab to Fab site. So I found this picture frame that was all black from savers. Saturday afternoon I went out to the back porch and sanded it down. Well I did leave some black on it. Then I took some paint that I already owned, put it on the sanded area, then add some water to the paint on the frame. Painted the amount of area I wanted, then dabbed with a paper towel. I wanted the grain of the wood to sow through. After I was finished I took off the tape from the black areas. I was very please with how it turned out. Sorry I did not take a before picture.
