How to Antique a Picture Frame
I found an antique picture frame from the '20s that I love. It is wood and painted a metallic gold, however, I think it would go better with the room if it were a dark antique gold. I plan to replace the picture with a family photo and hang it landscaped over the buffet with a tall buffet lamp on either side. So, I would like for it to coordinate with the buffet in a dark tone.
Any ideas on how to go about creating a darker finish for the frame in keeping with its age? I like complex looking finishes versus solid and flat.
