I bought this old green frame at the thrift store for a dollar.
I love the shape and the fun design border...but so drab.
Peacock blue paint from Waverly
It's the same paint I used to paint my side door in this post:
I used a flat brush and painted over all the green.
Next, I used Liquid Leaf from Plaid Crafts
It's like liquid gold, or copper in this case!
It's a light weight metal frame...and gold.
But slightly dingy.
Liquid Leaf, this time in gold
and painted all around the border.
This adds a rich thickness and fresh look.
It looks fabulous.
The new gold gilding gives it just the right amount of richness!
I love updating old things with fresh paint from Plaid Crafts!
