Who would have known that one of my favorite stores would end up being the Goodwill.
I enjoy going to the one in my area. It's clean and pretty organized.
I always head straight to the glassware section searching for old jars, cake platters, tiny pitchers etc..
Then I search for
picture frames and mirrors. I usually always find something I like.
I really liked the frame on this piece, which is a sort of tin and one of my favorite things right now is silhouettes, so I thought if this were cleaned up it could be pretty cute.
For this price, it was worth a shot anyway.
As soon as I get home, it's straight to the sink for some hot, soapy water. I love cleaning up my new pieces and this picture really needed it!
I took it apart and removed the old gold paper that was the background for the silhouette.
I cleaned the frame and then started cleaning the glass only to discover I was taking a lot of the paint off of the silhouette.
I found some paper I had on hand to replace the old gold one
put it all back together.
I can always replace the background paper and still deciding if I want to try and fill in some of the missing silhouette with some black paint.
I found this picture and loved it as is.
Another great price.
The colors on the frame are perfect. French country blue, gold and the perfect amount of wear and tear.
So all I had to do was dust her off and clean up the glass.
I love the picture. So sweet. I added this to a vignette in my dining room hutch. Will post pictures of that later.
I have lots more goodies to share, so until next time.....
Thank you for stopping by,
