I suppose, in my younger and more vulnerable years, I was a bit more flamboyant than I am now.
(Mom– I know. Where did it go?)
There was my multi-hued hair (a trait my sister and I both shared– hers was fire-engine red and I had streaks of green), my penchant for miniskirts and fishnets paired with goth-inspired platform heels. Usually mixed with J.Crew button downs, so I looked kind of like the staff of Hot Topic bred with a Kennedy. There was also lots of glitter.
Lots and lots of glitter.
I sort of shy away from glitter* nowadays, but I’m going to add some shimmer to my life with more metallic finishes.
Enter: THE FRAME!
After about 5 layers of gold paint plus one layer of High Gloss Mod Podge for a sealer, I give you:
My golden frame!
Since we have a few more of these frames laying about the house, I might try watering down the gold paint and using it as a glaze on another dark brown/black frame. Sort of give the dark color a bit of shimmer.
How do you sparkle?
