The Fill In

Remember when I added an extra frame around my foyer mirror? Well, that left an empty spot in my decor where that frame had previously been. There was only one thing to do. Find a fill in. This is what I found.Of course, the frame was a little too gold for my taste, so I brought out the Rub 'n Buff to grunge it up.









After applying R 'n B, I gave it a good rubbing which revealed a little of the original gold. This gave the finish more depth and dimension. I think it now has the appearance of an old piece that's been found in an attic. I like it much better now.
I'm sure you're wondering if
I plan on keeping that nice painting.

No.
I am not.

I have other plans.
But that will be another post.

How's that for a tease?

I love coming to visit! Thanks for another inspiring post! We actually had that art print in a mobile home we lived in when I was younger. Framed out in a simple (i.e. cheap) molding and tacked to the wall. Mom had a dickens of a time getting that thing off the panelled walls - LOL! Can't wait to see what you do with your project :)

Great idea! I should get some Rub & Buff b/c I have a couple of gold frames that would look much better afterwards.
