I have been wanting to do something with this picture frame for years....
and I mean YEARS....I bought it in 1975 when I lived in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. It had a cougar oil painting inside. Years ago I gave the cougar away, but kept the frame. I painted it off white with a cranberry red center.
About 10 years ago DH bought this oil painting at a garage sale. ..Ugly with a capital "U".
It's been sitting in the basement ever since. It is signed "Pickett". Now if you know that "Pickett" is akin to a Monet or some other famous landscape artist....don't tell me! I have heard of people buying an oil at a garage sale and it's worth millions....if a "Pickett" is worth a million, don't tell me! Because now it looks like this:
I took a straight-edged razor blade and skimmed the surface to get the high paint points off, then sprayed it with chalkboard paint.
I now have a huge chalkboard. Don't ask what I am going to do with it because I have no idea. I had planned to hang it beside my kitchen desk, but after I put the frame on, I discovered it's too big! I am sure I will find a use for it...just give me a bit more time. :)
Yesterday I made a new blue jean purse for my mom.
I am off work today, so who knows what creations may appear! The WHOLE day is mine to do whatever I want!! I hope I don't end up wasting it all cleaning.
