GORGEOUS VINTAGE GILT OP SHOP FIND ...PAINTING IT!!~~



Hi ladies, well a thundery old humid afternoon here in Melbourne..
I was happy i got my tennis in this morning..

This afternoon i have been painting a very nice & quite big gold/gilt frame I purchased from the op shop last week for $8.00..

I have removed the glass & the print...& am in the midst of painting it mixed shades of dulux white/antique white etc..

Am tempted to put a blackboard in its frame??

I am also white washing some more chic dolly "pegs"...ready to stamp with my french range of stamps..

and playing around with "dressing up" my wire dressmaker's dummy!! with left over crochet cloth & hessian....& some pearl strands or 4~~~!!

in between cooking MR C & myself 'chow mein" for dinner...

so another busy day...lots more tomorrow!!~~

HI Andrea.. I love the randomness of your pictures.. from picture frame to pegs to pearls to food!lol! I absolutely love the picture frame and am on the look out for one to make a blackboard too! It's a shame they don't make coloured chalk board paint.. or do they???? That chow mein.. looks delish! take care, Maryann

I'm ready for some lunch and that chow mein looks really tasty! Love the frame and little clothes pins, too. :-)

This frame would make a fabulous blackboard
