Thrifted Watercolor – Before and After

Last week I found this cute watercolor at a thrift store for $3.50. I snatched it right up, as I really liked the colors and it’s an actual painting (not a print). What I didn’t love so much was the sage green mat and faux bamboo frame. So I bought a new glossy white frame, and since the mat was a custom size to fit the piece, I spray painted it white as well. Below is the before and after. Grand total for artwork and frame: $7.50. Not bad.
