Sometimes you should just...

leave stuff alone!!  I was shopping last week in Mr Price in Dahran Mall... (now, any South Africans reading this are going to be hopping up and down saying 'They have Mr Price in Saudi Arabia'?) and found these photo frames... I certainly would not have paid the full asking price for them but as they had reduced stickers and were now pretty cheap-ish, I figured they might be good for a bit of tarting up!!
This is the way they came... I think they were trying for a vintage type effect...
So this is it after a couple of coats of paint and some gold and as you can see... I had company in scraproom today...

OK... so I think this where I should have just stopped....
but I didn't.... LOL

Beautiful Annette - just beautiful. As for Mr Price...when I read the first line, I was thinking....they used to have a Mr Price cheapy shop in Eastbourne when I visited my fil. That's why the shop has closed! He's moved to Jubail! LOL. Lucky you. I'm sad, as that is where I used to buy my lovely shaped canvases. TFS. ~Glen~
