Paint Paris Gray over gold frames and let them dry really well. Sand with a wet rag and then use a coat of clear wax and then a coat of dark wax.

Better After: White paint and Pewter Rub 'n Buff turned the gaudy gold into this!

Rub 'n Buff | Better After

A couple of weeks ago, the good folks over at Amaco sent me some Rub ‘n Buff samples to play with. Never having heard of Rub ‘n Buff, I was intrigued. I needed to get my hands on something to makeover, post haste! As luck would have it, I had recently made a purchase of a gaudy gold framed mirror. Behold! Yikes!
