BEWARE - VINTAGE CHICK WITH A PAINT CAN!!

What is it about a can of paint that puts a twinkle in the eye of us vintage chicks? This time it was heirloom white's turn.

I decided to transform a couple of my vintage frames. Here are the before shots.



When I lightly sanded the larger one after painting, the gold paint showed through beautifully, so decided not to stain it.

 

The middle frame I left as is, I like its worn patina.



I love the simplicity of the frames grouped together on the mantel.



Heirloom white in all its glory!



Thanks to Kathleen at fadedcharm for hosting White Wednesday. I hadn't realised I'd participate when I made this post, but it's a good fit, don't you think?

Happy days and happy painting!

I adore pitchers of all shapes and sizes, so when my Mom gave me those gorgeous tulips I knew just the spot for them!

Your frames are perfect, and living near the tulip fields in the Skaget Valley (WA. State), I adore this time of year because of the tulips, yours are gorgeous, in your sweet pitcher! Debbie @ Cottage Hann~Me~Downs

Hi Tracey! Don't you love how much difference some spray paint can make? Your mantel looks really pretty, and the color of those tulips against that wall color is a lovely combination!
