So my mother has had my great grandmother’s picture frames in the shed for as long as I can remember. When I moved into my first house I took them with me, trying to figure out what to do with them, but instead they stayed in my basement. When I moved to my new place, and saw the master bathroom with double vanity sink, I knew instantly I would transform the old frames into matching mirrors for the his and hers sink. Here is what they looked like before:
They were definitely roughed up, but a little bit of patching and love I knew it was fixable. Years and years of dust and grime had built up on the frames. I decided it needed a good cleaning, but was afraid to use anything harsh on them. I stuck with good old dish soap and hot water.
It was an instant improvement! The chips that were on the frames needed to be patched. I used wood filler, and did my best to shape some details in it, which proved to be difficult.
I decided to use Rustoleum spray in antique bronze. They came out awesome!!! Once they were all cleaned, patched, and painted, I brought the frames to Wayside Glass to have mirrors put in them. I was honestly a little nervous that they would not be able to put the mirrors in the frames because they are so old. However, they managed to do it, and they came out wonderful. Thanks to my wonderful boyfriend, they were hanged perfectly and they completed the whole vanity look. Here is the finished product.
