Old portrait frameMarch 21st, 2009 in member junk
Hi. I'm new here, and I love to see what everyone is doing with their junk. What fun!
I had this old portrait frame, the kind with the convex glass, and I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with it. I saw this spray paint in the hardware store today, called Krylon Looking Glass, and decided to turn the glass and frame into a mirror. I really like how imperfect it is. To me, it looks like the silvering has tarnished on an old mirror.
I didn't like the gold paint on the frame, so I just painted it. Some day, I might strip it to see what's under all the old paint, but for now, I like it how it is. I'm looking for the right chain to use to hang it on the wall.
