Ah, I just love alliteration, don’t you?
Don’t even get me started.
It’s like symmetry for the English nerd.
My daughter’s name is hannah. Not hanna.
Cause that would be incomplete. Unbalanced.
I know what you are thinking…
Oh, somebody around here is unbalanced.
Now where were we? Oh right.
I had this fancy (and by fancy I mean Hobby Lobby 40% off coupon fancy) GOLD frame and I just wasn’t feeling the love anymore.
Here’s your one chance fancy don’t let me down….dunna du du dowwww…..
Sorry, I cannot hear the word fancy without a little Reba flashback.
I’m more of a silver gal. Now there are silver fancy frames out there for sure. But why waste money when I can just give fancy a facelift?
So I grabbed this Rub ‘n Buff (Hobby Lobby $3.99) in Silver Leaf from my stashand got to work.
1) I wasn’t sure if this little tube contained enough for the whole frame. I chanced it. I’m a rebel that way. Turns out I could have painted 5 or 6—- 8 x 10 frames with this one little tube. The consistency is thin and a little goes a LONG way.
2) USE THIS IN A WELL-VENTILATED AREA. Holy toxic fumes, batman. This stuff will mess. you. up!!! I was busy painting away in my kitchen when all of a sudden Riley, Muffin and a couple of giggling gnomes riding unicorns were doing a conga line to a Gloria Estefan song around the island.
Once dry (almost immediately) I added some Valspar Antiquing Glaze to give it some depth and cut down on the shine.
Oh, silver fancy frame…how do I love thee? Let me count the ways…
p.s. This is my 500th post! woot.
