From nice to Gorgeous!


My Mother-in-law gave us a pretty picture of Christ about 5 years ago for Christmas.  We really liked it but the frame didn't quite fit in with our decor.  We've used it but since we moved in our last home (about 5 months ago) it sat on the floor in our Living Room because I just didn't know where to put it.   So I grabbed some black paint and switched out the picture (I like this one but I decided to use my favorite one of Christ instead).

It went from this (nice right?)
 to this!  I love it!  I think its absolutely gorgeous.

I removed the center gold piece to accommodate the size of my picture if not I would have painted it as well.  Can I let you in on a little secret?  Both pictures are from calendars.  They are beautiful and you can't even tell.
