Went shoppin' today and boy did I score...can you believe those huge, old gold mirror frames, oh yeah. The cute little chair already stripped with no finish left, the red velvet Victorian chair that I will find very hard to part with. How about the big mirror, the mercury backing is crumbling in just the right places and the great floral prints, hand-painted too. What a score!!! Ran into Barb, from Sisters' too at the same haunt and she suggested I paint all the frames and the mirror white, because of all the damage to them. I love the old gold patina, but then again, I am selling them and the odds of them buying them white is far greater than like they are...my decaying mansion style (crusty)...so what do YOU think...natural (crusty) or white. I'll post a picture of the finished products tomorrow.
