I removed the glass from the frame and used a piece of fine grit sandpaper across the surface to rough it up a bit. Then I gave the glass a coat of Rustoleum’s hammered brown spray paint￼ and left it to dry.
While the glass was drying, I gave the frame a coat of Krylon’s white primer￼ and then painted the primed frame with a coat of Vintage White￼.
I chose some light colored fabric, originally from a tablecloth that I used to make some curtains for my backdoor, and cut enough for my monogram letter. I placed the fabric onto waxed paper and painted the fabric with Mod Podge to prep it.
While everything was drying I made the pattern for my letter F. I chose the font I wanted, enlarged it on the copier, then printed off an extra copy. In order to make the F long and tall to match the frame, I cut sections of one F printout and pieced them together with tape. Then I cut the letter out.
Now it was time for another coat of hammered spray paint on the glass.
I added a small amount of dark brown paint to some glazing medium￼ and glazed the frame. When that was dry, I finished it with an acrylic sealer spray￼.
I pinned my “F” pattern to the dry Mod Podged fabric and cut out the letter.
In order to position the F properly in the frame I placed the painted glass back into the frame first and then placed the letter onto it. I used Mod Podge to attach the letter to the glass, only applying Mod Podge to the back of the fabric letter.
I placed the original backing back into the frame behind the glass and it was all done!
