Upcycled Frames, Serendipity, Lampshade Embellishment

When I had my shop in Helena, a great customer, Jeanine, had me paint a collection of ornate frames, mirrors, and tin for her daughter's college apt. at Auburn.  Here's a picture of the collection:

That daughter has now graduated from Auburn and Jeanine has another daughter on her way there so Jeanine is "upcycling" the frames and asked me to paint some of them a distressed antique white for her!

Paint is an inexpensive way to recycle and pass items on in the family!

Here are some new frames in my space at Shoppe Serendipity!

Tuesday Morning had these cute lampshade embellishments for sale in their lamp section, I think they were only $7.99!
