When at the thrift store a couple of weeks ago this old frame caught my eye. I enjoy using frames in different ways, especially ornate old frames.
This large frame has pretty detail and I grabbed it for $10. How could I not?
The frame back is old wood and is wrapped in it seems gilded gesso. Perfect for this French lover.
It’s missing gesso in a few places. I used gold paint I had on hand and rubbed where pieces were missing, it wasn’t very noticeable, for me it adds charm. Old pieces don’t have to always be perfect if you love them. It adds to their story.
Needless to say the frame needed some cleaning especially the back. I should have saved the rags after cleaning, filthy.
Once home and cleaned I loved her even more in her gilded color and she found her place displaying my boxwood wreath. I think they make a wonderful couple, ha, ha.
Hope you gave great Monday!
