No more boring, black photo frames!  

In this tutorial, you will see how you can really brighten up a room by applying gorgeous, vibrant finishes to plain wood frames.  We used Cabot Premium Wood Finish in a variety of colors to match the cool mod look going on in a bedroom for two very cool kids!

  • Buy unfinished wood frames online or from a local store. When creating photo collages, it's great to use and odd number of frames like 5. 
  • Remove the glass and set aside.
  • Lay each frame out on a covered workspace and make sure the frames are ready for finishing. If rough, they will need a little sanding first. If not, you're ready to go.
  • Apply your choice(s) of Cabot Premium Wood Finish to each frame using long, smooth brush strokes. Each frame can be finished using a different color, if you choose.
  • Let the finish dry for approximately 2 hours.
  • Lightly sand the frames using very fine sand paper and wipe clean.
  • Apply a second coat (or more if you would like a richer color) and allow to dry.
  • Insert the glass back into the frames and place your favorite photos in your newly finished frames.
  • Hang photos in an interesting layout and you have a beautiful, custom collage that is tailor made for your home!
