Rescued cherub plaques

Found this pair of BADLY refinished cherub plaques at the thrift store.  The fabric backing looked like it was originally avocado green velvet, that had been spray painted over with white.  The cherubs pulled off easily, as did the fabric.

I gave the cherubs a fresh coat of white spray paint; then some Ralph Lauren tobacco glaze.  Covered the back board with some sheet music, and painted the frame black.  Glued the board into the frame and the cherubs to the board.

  1. Those cupids look great – good job!

    I don’t know whether this is the right site or what, but I need ideas for re-using some household items. If this is it, let me know. If not, can you advise where I should go for ideas?

    Thank you,
