Weekend project: Frame restoration

I had an urge to do-up some big frames. Off I went to the charity shops today - and I picked up a bargain!

Just a tenner! I know if I'd have gone to Saltaire to look in their vintage shops I'd have been expected to pay in excess of £30 for something like this!

I decided to go for bright, bold colours.  The paint I have used is super glossy.

I also started on the big old frame I used as my shop sign last year

Can't wait til they're completely finished - these are for my stall but I want to do loads for my home too, they'd be perfect!

They'll look great. I've seen some on Etsy where instead of a picture there's a blackboard. That looks great with a brightly painted frame.

Yay I love brightly painted frames! I painted some white and then painted the glass with blackboard paint which was super fun but I'd like some bright ones to put up in my craft room :)
