How about a Quickie?

A quickie makeover, that is!   I bought these two framed pictures at the flea market last month for a quarter a piece.   Wasn't crazy about the pictures or the frame but they were in great shape and a nice size and who can beat that price?


A quick paint job and a beautiful rose print glued in and you now have this:


My original plan was to also add some cute garden sayings and other items to them but I'm liking them just the way they are; very sophisticated looking.   I think I might have to redo my bathroom just so I have a place to hang these beauties.

The rose prints are actually from some file folders I found at the thrift store last year; I'm going to be really sorry when those are all used up!

I agree- they were nothing to look at! but good for you for seeing beyond the surface beauty- I don't think I could do that!
Total bathroom makeover? Go for it! :)

Debbie they do look so much better.
Good job. I bought the Flea Market
Garden magazine today and I love it. Thanks so much for sharing.
I splurged because I won't usually
spend $10 on one but this one is
really good.

Scan in your file folders to your printer. Then you can print out copies anytime you need it for a project.
