Before & After A Great Estate Sale Find!

I found this set of  framed botanical  Prevost lithograph prints at an estate sale.  I paid $1.00 each.  The frames were solid but very worn out.  I took the backs off and cleaned the glass inside and out.  Then I sanded the frames on any rough spots.   I used a base coat of white satin spray paint followed by a hand painted coat of Glidden Satin Enamel “Blue Drop”.   You can buy this paint at Walmart.  After they dried for 24 hours I did a light sanding on the edges to bring out that shabby cottage feel.



I am an interior designer with over 27 years of experience in both residential and commercial design. I love the "do it yourself" person because I am a do it yourself person and I very much identify with making old new again. I believe that our spirits are rejuvinated and inspired when we relect who we are and what we believe in and are not afraid to face the harder parts of our lives. This blog will be dedicated to that purpose. I am also a survivor of domestic violence. I have an insatiable desire to grow and learn about myself in both spiritual and emotional ways. I love being a guest speaker for events in self-growth with the idea of hopefully inspiring others that past traumas can be over come and life can be terrific or at the very least good!
