First, I gave it a good cleaning. Then I gave it several coats of acrylic paint. The scalloped edges are already starting to stand out!
Next I took one of my favorite colors of the moment, and used it as an accent color in the groove that goes around the frame. It created a great shape!
Here is the finished product! I know it is sad that I have several 8x10's of the Beatles on hand, but none of family or people that I actually know, but this will have to do for now :)
I love how the white makes the details stand out and how the pop of color gives it a great updated shape!
