Remains: Bathroom Bride Decor

4

I absolutely love ornate frames. The more victorian and gothic they look the better. I am hoping to one day re do all the frames in our home to only be this type of frame. I have gradually started but right now we have soooo many things framed it would cost a small fortune to replace them all. My Mother In Law always keeps an eye out for them at garage sales. She had found me a silver 5 x 7 one a while back when I was upcycling frames for my limited edition framed art prints. I decided not to use this one for the project and keep it all to myself. 🙂 I just wasn’t sure when or how I was going to use it until today.

First I painted it. I mixed a plum purple with a hint of hot pink to make the color I wanted. While it was still wet I brushed a dry cloth over it to get some of the silver shine to come through. After it dried I printed one of my favorite photos of Elsa Lachester on photo paper. It is of her on the set of the Bride of Frankenstein applying her makeup. Perfect to hang in our bathroom! I just love the way it looks with our Be Your Own Kind Of Bootiful sign (that I got for $2.50 during Halloween at Dollar General)! On our other wall is the Sourpuss Clothing Beauty Is Only Skin Deep clock that I recently picked up on their clearance for only $6!!

Remains: 1961 Aurora Frankenstein Model Resurrected

3

About 4 years ago my husband surprised me by bringing home a project for us. It was a box of various pieces of vintage 1960’s Universal Monster Models made by Aurora. He bought them from a co-worker who had previously put them together and painted them as a kid… hence why they became a fun “project” for us.

As you may recall we completed the Creature From The Black Lagoon and decided to give that one to our tattoo artist and friend Kenny as a thank you gift. The rest would remain in our collection to add to Universal Monster themed living room.

Well the project of completing Frankenstein, Dracula and the Wolfman came to a screeching hault because before we knew it I was in the hospital having surgery after surgery. Well I am happy to say that things have slowed down and I spent part of my weekend completing Frankenstein while watching The Little Mermaid. Seems like I should have been watching that when I did the Creature model instead but I needed an Ariel fix.

So here are some shots I took of the model right before I painted it….

And here are photos of it after I painted it and my husband put it all back together.
