Hope everyone was safe and cozy in the Mid and Northeast during the snowstorm.
I'm dreaming of what to put in my shop for spring...it's fun to think ahead to the next season while sitting in front of a roaring fire with a mug of hot chocolate...

Before and after photo of weekend project: I sanded the frame with fine sandpaper to get rid of some of the dark stain, then I used crème wax and buffed. I cleaned the oil painting by using the white part of white bread, wadded it into a ball and used it like an eraser. Voila! The painting is from 1947 and on the back of the frame it says it was given as a gift in 1999. I am sure the muddy antiquing glaze was added then. The difference isn't major--just lighter. What was your weekend project?
