Empty Frame Wall Decor

I’ve been looking for something to hang above an antique couch for a few months.  I wanted to get something other than a picture.  Maybe a large clock or a shelf of some kind, but I couldn’t find anything I liked that was in my price range.

Then, a coworker left this picture behind when he took another job and I saw its potential.  Here’s what it looked like:

You can’t really tell from the “after” picture, but I put a layer of teal paint on it and then a layer of white paint.  Then I took a piece of sandpaper and distressed it.  And I removed the beach picture.

Here it is now:

It was super fast and easy because I already had everything I needed.  Hooray for free decor!
