Gilded Artwork

by Andrea on July 17, 2012

Yesterday, Mo and Pip had a playdate, and to my surprise, Mo presented me with a piece of artwork.  His first canvas painting. (Thank you, Emily!)

Today, I swung by Goodwill to look for doorknobs.  I didn’t find doorknobs, but I found a piece of milk glass, a necklace, and this lovely panther. Meow.

All frames and artwork were 30% .  What this means is that I walked away with this lovely chunky wood frame for $7.  Yay!  Sadly and perhaps shockingly, I have no place for the panther in my home. Would you? But now, I do have the perfect way to display Mo’s artwork.

I picked up some Krylon metallic finish gold spray paint and voilá! The purple and dingy gold was gone.  Shiny new gold was here to stay!

Next up was finding the perfect spot.  The photo is a little dark because this area doesn’t get a lot of natural light, but you get the picture.

I love that I can swap in future pieces of ‘art’, as I’m sure this is just the beginning.
