pretty little picture frames

I found these little picture frames in a shop called Instore (cheap and not-so-nice store but good for the odd household thing) for the bargain price of £2 each......£2! and that wasn't even in the sale..
They remind me of Barbola mirrors but they are made of resin. The detail is really good and they have a velvety back and stand.
I wasn't sure if I liked them at first, they're not something old and genuine with a history.
I didn't know whether to paint them or not, so I thought for £2 its worth a go painting one of them just to see...

so here's one I painted!

hmmmmmm, I'm still not sure...

you just can't beat the real thing!
What do you reckon?

  3. Oh thanks you guys! I still can't decide between painted or unpainted but then I'm terrible at making my mind up about anything!

  5. I have got a real barbola mirror (which I love) but don't you have to be careful nowadays as there are some very good reproductions around. Saying this I think for the very small outlay, your resin ones are fabulous, and I think it looks lovely painted, although in a certain setting, just leaving them white would work. I wonder whether we have an Instore near us, I would like a mooch around in there. x
