Finds Made Over

A week or so ago, I showed you some frames that I found at Goodwill.

I got the wall pocket/sconce about a month ago.  I can’t believe I didn’t take a before picture of it!  Anyway, it was silver ~ the whole thing.  The wall pocket/sconce got a coat of Heirloom White and a glaze of Burnt Umber.  It really brought out the details in this lovely piece.

I can’t use it myself, so it’s in my Etsy

This frame also got the Heirloom White and Burnt Umber treatment.

It’s also in my Etsy shop with this pretty French graphic.

The more ornate frame just got a coat of Heirloom White.  That sweet image came with the frame and at the bottom right corner tells you the size {3 1/2 x 5}.

I’m holding onto this one for the time being because I really like it, but if I can’t find anywhere to use it in my home, off to the Etsy shop it goes.   I’ve got some more painting projects on my to do list; little ones at the moment before I tackle the two side tables in our guest bedroom.

It's always amazing what a good coat of paint can do for those old forgotten frames you can find in the thrift shops! Those turned out lovely.

Oh girl! That little 3-1/2x5 frame has my name all over it. I'm checking your Etsy now. I can't believe it's the same frame. I had to go back for a second look.

Kathy--Great finds and it is amazing what a coat of paint can do, isn't it? I would have a hard time parting with that sweet little piece, too. xo Diana
