Antique Silver Frame


Lauren from The Endearing Home almost purchased a beautiful antique silver frame from West Elm. Almost… before she realized she had several old frames in her garage that could easily be refabbed. Lauren applied Rub ‘n Buff to one of the frames for an aged silver finish and also created a linen matting using an old curtain panel. I am loving how Lauren totally nailed the look with items she already had! Yay for not one but TWO great upcycles!
