I can’t buy into gold frames. Gold framed mirrors, picture frames, chalkboards…etc. It’s a very iconic French Country design look…but I just don’t love gold.
However, I do love the detailing in most gold frames.
This one, in particular was painted by Fiona from Australia! Fiona has her own very successful blog, and when she visited LA a couple of weeks ago, she made a special trip to Glendora just to visit the store! It was such a treat to paint with her for a few minutes and chat about refinishing furniture!
The base coat is painted in Paloma with a smattering of Emile on top. I distressed it down to the gold and added a heavy coat of dark wax to settle in all of the detailing!
I just love simple changes for a fresh look!
