When I asked what the price was for the old terra pot, she paused and said “a quarter”.
When I asked her how much for the next item, she said “a quarter”.
It didn’t take long for me to realize that this was going to be fun.
By the time I put my pile on the table she said “a dollar……..ummm fifty?”
I love a good treasure hunt.
Especially when it’s ran by an old lady who just wants to get rid of everything.
Honestly, I wasn’t completely sure about these heavy metal frames when I first picked them up.
But…at a quarter how could I go wrong?
Armed with a can of off-white spray paint…
I deconstructed the frames and gave everything a couple coats of paint.
I sprayed the black velvet matting with spray adhesive and applied a piece of a woven tan fabric.
I marked the two holes in the matting where the metal flowers had been previously.
I was able to use the prongs on the back of the metal flowers to line them up exactly where they
had been before. (so easy)
I trimmed the excess fabric from around the matting and re-inserted everything back into the frame.
A super simple project with a modern up-dated look.
