Bringing Life Into An Old Frame

Good morning and happy Monday!  I hope everyone had a good weekend.  They always go so fast don't they?  We finally got some snow around these we enjoyed a little sledding fun on Sunday afternoon.  Good times as my three year old giggled the whole sound in the world!  Anyways....I have a frame up-cycle project for you today.  I found this frame at a flea market for a mere $0.50.  I liked the bulkiness and the size of the frame.  Here's the before picture....
I gave it a coat of primer and then added two coats of semi-gloss paint.  I chose a fantastic shade of aqua and then distressed it.  Then, I took a piece of material and adhered it to the back of the frame.  This frame did not have glass and I wanted to be able to display a picture.  I glued a white clip to the front of the material so you can change your pictures easily and frequently.  Here's the after picture.
I also think it could be cute with a fun quote!  Do you like it?
