The small framed artwork is a copper etching lithograph I found in an antique shop. It's titled "Mobile Home II," and I instantly fell in love with its charm. It's so whimsical and lovely! This is how it looked like when I brought it home.
Even though I liked the artwork very much, I didn't care for the faux finish of the frame. So, I grabbed my trusty Rub N Buff antique gold and did a quick update on the finish.
I just used my finger and spread the Rub N Buff all over the frame. It was easy and the entire process took about five minutes. When it was done, I allowed the paint to dry completely. Then I lightly polished it with a piece of paper towel to bring out some luster.
The finish is a little uneven as you can see in the photos, but that's exactly the effect what I was after.
Now the frame has a warm copper-like sheen, which I love.
A beautiful bouquet of blue hydrangeas complete the vignette.
Hope you had a wonderful start to the week.
