Rub & Buff to the rescue!

 Now I know it's just not me that walks around the house staring at things...then suddenly feel it needs a fix...right!!
Well that's how I felt every time I walked by these pictures in my hallway. I painted these frames last year in Forest Green...love the color but it just needed a little more...rub & buff to the rescue!
 I applied a little rub & buff to the inner part of the frame when I first painted them but they still looked like they where missing something...so I simply added a little more around the outter edges. Now they feel complete:)
Here's a Before...
 and now the After...
  Now they won't bug me anymore when I walk by them:)

 My girls were in their dance recital last weekend...here's a quick look at the two of them. Mackenzie was in her tap costume and Victoria was in her ballet one. They both LOVE dance...Mackenzie is in 7 different numbers and dances beautifully...her little sister is following in her foot steps! So proud of them!
Have a great week!!

I love the pics... they look just perfect. I laughed when you said, "I am not the only one who stops and stares at things in my house".... I so do that!..lol My hubby says as he is walking out the door...."don't move the couch today or anything else...." lol.... Your daughters are precious!! Blessings!

The added rub n buff made all the difference! They really look aged now. Great idea. Your daughters are beautiful. Wish I had a girl that was in dance. I grew up doing all that kind of stuff and always thought I would be a mom behind stage at the dance recitals helping the kids get ready. Since I had boys, that obviously didn't happen! LOL!

Your frames look amazing now, and they really pop off the wall. Great choice. Your oldest daughter looks like a character from the tv show Nashville.

Beautiful girls!! And, your frames look great. I was over at a friend's house yesterday helping her accessorize. I suggested that she get some rub 'n buff. Well, she hadn't heard of that product before and thought it sounded a little perverted. We had a good laugh :)

Anne said...

Love that touch of gold Martina! Oh what a sweet photo of your girls!
