I picked up this frame at an Estate sell. It had been in the basement a long time. I left it out to air-but the basement smell would not go away! My husband suggested spray painting it to seal it.
I said WHAT! This is a beautiful wood frame-I don't want to ruin it!
I let it air some more. The smell wasn't going away.
So we sprayed it gloss white. I had decided to make put something contemporary looking in it.
Then I remembered.....Deco Art Metallic Wax and Antiquing Cream.
I put a coat of carbon black antiquing cream on first.
let it dry.
Take a damp cloth and wipe to reveal the beautiful design of the frame.
Take a dry cloth and rub the Gold Metallic Wax to highlight the raised edges.
Look for Deco Art products. I give the Antiquing Cream and Metallic Wax a big thumbs up!!
