I love this stuff!!

I first happened on this stuff from the 

And now I'm addicted!
Remember last summer my sister and I got all
these frames in Walnut Iowa.

They are kinda beat up!

To the non junker they see fire wood....

I / we junkers see beyond...........

This once was really pretty!
 I love all the molding......

But as you can see it's coming off 

So I decided to spray paint it really thick to hold the molding on!

Get out the way chickens or your gonna be white!

Once it dried.....
It was really WHITE.....
That's when I remembered the rub stuff......

Hobby Lobby didn't have it and neither did Michael's!
Finally found it at Jo Ann's Fabrics!

I used an old Bounce sheet to rub it on!

Don't want to mess the nails!

Look at that thing of beauty.......

And that's why I love this stuff!!!


  1. Jane, did you go to Walnut Iowa for the flea market? My parents go every year. :) I love the picture frames you picked up and the rub and buff transformation.

  2. What a great product! You totally transformed those frames! BTW - luv the nails!

  3. I've always wanted to try RubnBuff but so far I haven't. What a great idea to use an old dryer sheet, I'll have to remember that one! Your frame looks lovely:)

    Popped over from White Wednesday:)

  4. Wow! That's amazing! You did a beautiful job on a very ugly duckling. :)

    Have a great day.

  5. LOVE THIS! Come on ova' and link up to my Linky Party! xoxokara


  6. Love it. Isn't it fun to find a new and perfect product. Your frame is stunning. Hugs, Marty

  7. That looks amazing. Thanks for a great explanation of what Rub 'n Buff looks like & how you used it. Now I know I have to get some. I'm new to your blog, visiting from Kara's party. I'm also a new follower, & I hope you'll take a peek at my blog & follow back if you find it interesting.

  8. Brilliant makeover! The moldings are pretty it compliments the color so well. Love the luster finish.

  9. I need to try that! I have lots of frames that have just been waiting for a good fire. Maybe this is a better option. Thanks for sharing and love all the molding on that frame. Just beautiful!

  10. Oooh, I think I'm going to have to find some of that for my craft stash!! YOu've completely transformed it. Thank you so much for sharing the step by step. I hope your nails stood up to the trauma!! Ha!


  11. You did magic with the frame! I love that stuff too!
    OK Still waiting for my wine :)

  12. Jane, that is great stuff isn't it? That's o.k. you can talk behind my back as long as it is nice! ha ha

  13. Where do you buy Rub N Buff - I've looked a few places.

  14. I am dying to try this stuff! I am going to use your tips. Thanks for sharing!!

  15. Rub N' Buff is rocking! I've used it before in the patina color, which I LOVE, btw!!! If you like the bluey/green aqua color it's a great one for the nooks and crannies when trying to get the aged look a piece would have when exposed to sea air. I had been very curious how the Antique Gold color actually looked. Thank you for sharing. I'm not scared to buy it now. =0)


  16. Jane, I also love this product. It is so easy and a little goes such a long way, so thanks for featuring and the "how-tos" add just your touch on great creations! Rags to Riches sweetie, rags to riches, with a little tube of Rub n Buff, who would have thunk! Love love your trunk! Terri

  17. That looks great! I'll have to try this product since I just got some new frames myself. Thanks for the tip.

  18. thanks for sharing this wonderful stuff! the frame is just gorgeous!
    have a wonderful day

  19. Yep; 'tis true! Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. We junkers see the potential for beauty in what others consider trash. Thank goodness! Trash is so much cheaper! lol

    Thanks for linking to the party again, Jane. I'm looking forward to seeing you this week, as well.
