The Power of Paint

 Good morning fellow bloggers.  It's Thursday and the week seems to be going so slow when you have a day off during the week.  My school system had Monday off which I enjoyed but now the rest of the week seems to be slowing down.  Well, I found these metal floral pictures at a GARAGE SALE, of course.  I really like the scroll y  frames but they just needed to be freshened up, if you know what I mean.....or just a different look to them.   Anyways here are the before pictures:
 
 
 So after I scrubbed them up I decided to rub pink paint on the metal frames to bring out the pink in the flowers.  I tried to leave as much pink paint in the grooves as I could.  After the paint dried I than brushed on a satin poly-acrylic finish to preserve the pink paint on the metal.  Here is the after picture:

 
 I think they look more delicate and girly.  They would look great in a bedroom, bathroom or even in an entrance of a home.  What do you think?
