Ugly inexpensive large scaled vintage photograph print and frame made NEW!
The Renovation steps
|Say goodbye to this picture!|
I was thinking that this would be good for displaying some nautical flags. I love flags. This picture was made well, it's just not attractive any longer. Unfortunately, it cannot be disassembled. Whoever made the frame, made it to stay together permanently, print and all.
I had no option but to paint directly on the print with a gesso type paint. Here is what I did.
|I painted the frame black. I will show closeups of this in a later post.|
|The frame was obviously made by a craftsperson with some skill. The|
corners are perfect in the front and the back.
|I found this driftwood walking along the Chesapeake Bay. I have a bunch of it!|
|I thought these would be really fun with some kind of whale, ship, or|
sailboat painted on them.
