Vintage Gold Tilt Frame Vignette

February 09, 2012
I recently found a vintage gold tilt picture frame at a local consignment store for $1.  It didn't have any glass, and the backing was missing. 

I touched it up with some gold paint and rub on antique gold, and used the glass from another 8 x 10 frame I had on hand.  I paid another $1 to have the glass cut at a local hardware store. 

This little peachy pink dress hangs in my bathroom.  It was my daughter's dress.   

This is a photo of my daughter in the dress.

Then, I got the idea to order a reprint of the above photo in black and white, with just the dress colorized.  The reprint cost me $7.49.  The end result is...I love it.  The photo is really fun in black and white. 

Here is the frame in a little vignette on my bathroom vanity, in my quaint 1950's bathroom.  The dress is visible in the mirror behind the picture frame, along with my baby dress.

About a $10 investment for my special photo and frame!
