Little fixer upper

Found this at the thrift store.  (this pic was taken AFTER I had sanded it) I think it was originally an IKEA mirror, with the mirror missing.  Doesn’t matter.  I just CANNOT pass up frames!

So I sanded off the shiney brown finish and went rummaging through my box of wood embellishments to get inspired.

What I found was THIS; a little broken piece that came off a sign.  Glued it on with a dab of e6000 and let it dry.

Then spray painted it pink.  (I needed a wee bit of a break from all the Robin’s egg blue stuff I’ve been painting lately, as you see in the background!)

I may search out some pretty pink ribbon to make a hanger for it.
