This is another one of my finds.....
The tag says $3.99, but I snagged it on a 1/2 off day. So, I only paid $2 for it!!!
I know... it looks awaful the way it is.... all scratched up. The hooks were so bad. They had all tarnished in some weird way that none of them matched. There was tape all over it and all kinds of sticky stuff on the glass.
To fix it up, first I took it apart... hooks and all... and gave it a really good bath.
Then, I got out my trusty can of ORB. (You know it's my favorite)
Next, I spray painted the hooks and screws with ORB.
For the frame, I wanted to paint it a nice creamy color. Krylon makes a beautiful shade called Ivory.
Oops! But I accidently grabbed the can of Krylon primer. And I was wondered why it was not looking very good. Went back inside, got the Ivory paint out and went to town spraying again.
Once everything was dry, I put it back together, cut scrapbook paper to fill in the frames, and here it is.....
I love this rehab! She'll probably land in our bedroom. We're in the midst of painting our entire house and I've really been wanting to incorporate some blues in our bedroom. I think this will be the perfect addition. Once we're done, I'll post some before and after pics.
I almost always take my pics outdoors because I love the natural light. Right after I took this pic this morning, I looked to my right and this is what I saw.
We finally got some rain last night and my irises are finally blooming! I love spring!
