Mel and I saw these frames at the Antique Trove in Roseville and I thought I might be able to do something with them. I took them home and they sat around for a while. I figured since I have just got into water coloring this would be a great next project.
The first thing I did was sand down that tacky palm image so the surface was smooth. Once sanded I used an antique white flat house paint to cover the old image and give me a new canvas.
This one took about a day to paint. We are happy with the results.
This next one was more of an original idea.
I love that these frames were able to be used with new art. I think it is always important to realize that re-purposing items can make them new again!
Also, Here is another one I recently knocked out for our Tiki Room. I guess I am on some kind of jungle cat kick!
I think I will take a break from painting and pick up my gloves again and start restoring some furniture.
