Bought this huge old painting at a garage sale. I wanted a canvas that I could repurpose. Should have been an easy thing to do. Well, this canvas had a lot of texture on it, that I could not get off. So I took out all one thousand staples and flipped it over and re stapled it and painted it with some left over house hold paint. Painted it .........wasn't happy with it and just kept painting. Waited a few days before touched it again and Voila. It is now the new addition in the guest bedroom.
