Good Ole George – Modern Touch

George in his Americana gold frame.

George after Tyler Goodro's modern reprise.

Design*Sponge is another great design blog with inspiration for your home and, occasionally, for the office (forgive me if I have already mentioned this blog on this site – it’s really that good to mention again). Here’s one prime example of a junky antique store find updated with a modern twist for contemporary living. Submitted by Tyler Goodro of Plastolux, the tacky old gold frame with plexiglass was treated to an artful redo including new glass. Every time I enter an antique shop, I always find similar pieces just like this. Now I’m inspired to try my hand at something that makes for a contemporary reinterpretation for my office. With a little acrylic paint and the time and patience, you too can have a modern one-of-a-kind. Just avoid the urge to buy the picture with the dogs playing pool.
