You may remember the thrift store frame we acquired for THE wedding. The one Mr. Tennis didn't see for 5 days. Well, he definitely notices it now because I gave it a little makeover this week.
The hardest part was cleaning the dirt and dust from all the carving.
Used a damp sponge and blotted dry with paper towel.
Now comes the easy part! I had bought a small container of metallic gold acrylic paint. My dilema was what to use as a brush since I wanted it to be very light and not totally coat the original finish. Enter an old blush brush - yes, such things exist in my home, believe it or not my friends.
It had the light feathery touch that I wanted to embellish this lovely mirror's frame.
Quick back and forth strokes gave me just the right amount of coverage and I think the finished product looks really great.
How do you like it?
