Tweaking

Tweaking a few op shop buys.

Before
After


The jury is still out as to whether this is the right colour for the frame.  Never paint something at night!  Mum see that gorgeous little jug taking pride of place.  I think the pink brings out the colour in the chairs quite well.

 I like this much better now it is painted.  The silver was a bit over the top for me but I love the design.  Now I need to find some black and white photos to put in here.

Ooo they look great! The first one looks so much better with a lighter frame. With the second the lighter colour brings out the detail. Great job!

Fab finds and great makeovers Anne. Black and white photos in the second frame will really finish it off.
Just back from S--tlighting, the wool I needed wasn't on sale........hope my supply will last until it is on sale!
No op shop find either, oh well, 'tis the way it goes sometimes.

Nice finds. I think they both look better painted. Plus you have added your touch and made them yours!
