Once upon a time there was a lovely piece of art that grew a bit drab due to a linen fabric matt that yellowed with age.
So inspired I was with Rub-N-Buff I applied a coat to the matt. Where it hung for a while it was fine. But in a new location in another room with a different wall color the rubbed gold effect wasn't working. Not even a tiny little bit.
Couldn't have been an easier update. Didn't even have to remove the acrylic painting. Just taped and burnished the edge of the tape with a firm but not sharp edge ... a credit card.
The paint was a sample pot in a Satin finish. The fabric absorbed the paint and the matt ended up in a matte finish but true to color.
Although I'm the original owner of this piece I now know to not walk away from linen framed art at consignment or thrifts that show age or wear. Easy-peasey to update.
Plate Wall / No-Holes-In-Wall-Hanging-Experiment Update
It's been over two weeks and all the plates are still, well, hanging!
Just a reminder, no nails or other method that leaves a hole in the wall was used to hang these plates.
I'll share the results of my experiment next week - success or failure, and share the deers on how the plates were successfully (fingers crossed that's the result) attached to the wall.
