So about 3 months ago, I saw a yard sale where the remaining items were free. (I believe the people were moving and just wanted their extra stuff gone.) So I stopped because I was curious on what I would find. I tend to find a lot of things that only need a little tlc to bring them back to looking fresh and new. Anyways, I dug thru the boxes and most of the items were broken or I wasn’t interested in them. Then I came across this picture frame, the glass wasn’t broken nor the frame. It still had its original price sticker. I grabbed it up because I know exactly what I can do with it. The only thing I could see as wrong was that the frame paint was all scratched up.
I am going to sand down the frame and repaint it. I used a course piece of sandpaper because at the time that is all I could find. Also it worked the best!
I did have to keep stopping to wipe the section I was working on down. The blue was pretty but not for me, also it was scratched up.
The wood underneath is really nice. The former blue paint left a minor tint to the wood but I just took a fine grain of sandpaper to it. The fine grain too it right off. I want to mention that I only did the very front.
**now since the Marine has seen it, I am not allowed to repaint it. He says the wood is too nice to cover up.** …..men 😉
