Weekend Projects - green damask and guilding!

The past two weekends, I have been pretty busy crafting away. It's now time to reveal the finished products! I will start with the easiest project - spray painting an old yellow frame I had stored away. I painted it white and added of picture of my precious puppy Bailey. Its new home is on our kitchen counter.

The picture above is of what consumed alot of my time last weekend. The pumpkins were from Hobby Lobby and were orange before. I then guilded away!! Silver is more my style, but I could have done gold or copper too. They turned out really cute and now sit on my kitchen table.

My favorite two projects are left to share. I will start with the ugly frame I purchased from Goodwill for $2. If you ask me, I think it should have been free, but I decided the pay the $ since it was just the right size I was looking for. The pictures that were in the frame made me laugh too - which is priceless!! :)
The next picture is of the chair from Goodwill - $4. If you know anything about me - gold is not my friend. I knew right away that I would need to get my trusty white spray paint out for both projects. I purchased the lime green damask off of Ebay and went to work. The chair now sits by our door leading to garage (main door we use) and the frame is above our pantry.
