I found this old frame in the trunk in the basement, along with a bunch of my mother-in-law's college stuff from the 1930's. I think it had a photo of an old flame or a college chum inside. It was in BAD shape, the silvery finish was flaking off, and it was unusable in it's found state. I had to take a toothbrush and brush away the rest of the flaking stuff ( may have had lead in it for all I know!) You can see the stuff in the box beneath it:
I sprayed the top of the frame with spray adhesive, and sprinkled on Martha Stewart Sterling Glitter:
The insert that is actually the easel back has this cool green and black design on the fabric covering it! I left the glass out so I could get this photo:
All done! And it just happened to be the perfect size for this sweet photo of my mother-in-law when she was a little girl:
Much improved from the top picture, don't you agree?
