I pick up cool old frames all the time. I usually don't even pay attention to the cheap artwork inside. Selling painted frames is my bread and butter.
My husband had found this one for me. I was looking at the frame and sizing it up ... thinking what color paint would look good on it.
Then I noticed the brass name plate on the bottom. Darn, something else I would have to mess with. On second thought, maybe not. I have some painting skills. What if I just brought the sunfaded sunflowers back to life?
All it took was three colors of paint, and I LOVE the finished work. Worst case scenario? It doesn't sell like this and I end up painting the frame to sell by itself.
