This is a beautiful old frame with a beveled mirror. It was painted a plain white when I found it at a 2nd hand store. I first painted the blue background, then came the deep purple for the carved accent at the top. Blueberries came to mind......who knows? Should be finished soon and hanging in the gallery
Sanding before painting an already painted surface is very important. Sand enough to take any gloss off and to smooth out the surface from chips in the paint or any grit you may feel. This will help the new coat of paint to adhere and endure as well as giving it a satin smooth look.
