To Rub’N’Buff Or Not To Rub’N’Buff

I’m working on a little project at my house and doing a mini revamp of my dining room.  After buying a pair of these large frames (for $32 each, woowoo!) this weekend, I am debating on whether to leave them the creamy white color or go to town with some rub’n’buff on the thin frame.

I tested a little on the back to see what it would look like, and this photo gives you a feel for it.

I’m still debating…I’m actually going to hang these today and then see what I think.  Do you have an opinion?  They will be against the creamy white wainscoting you see in the above pictures.  More to come on this project soon…

Hope you had a lovely weekend!

    I am sure whatever you do with them will be fab. But what is inside them is GORGEOUS!

      Sabrina, thank you! I’m loving the marbled paper, too!

    I love gold frames! Can’t wait to see your final verdict.

      Hi Julie, it is actually handmade marbled paper from Paper Mojo – I will have all of the juicy details on the blog soon! 🙂

    I kinda like the idea of both! You could tape off the corners, and just rub & buff the corner edges.
    Good luck! 🙂

      Lisa, interesting idea! I hadn’t thought of how to do both yet! G

    For a touch of gold/brass you could use gold square brackets ala Kristin from the Hunted Interior or just Rub n Buff inside part of the frame.

      Shelley, I did think of using brackets, and I pondered just doing the inside of the frame, but I wonder if that would be too much work? I hung the frames tonight, so I’m going to see what I think in a day or two. Great ideas, thank you!!! 🙂

    Definitely go with the Rub n Buff!

      Sarah, noted! 🙂

    I’m really torn!
    I do like Shelley’s idea of brass brackets……..

      Emily, I know, right? I am liking the bracket idea, too.
