The picture frame was of that very cheap almost pot metal, you can see it in the picture of Ariel's parlor under the title "Clearing Up in Ariel"
That metal has a tendency (in the last 15 years I've had these small frames)
to get a little frost, I don't know what else to call it.
This one had a little and I also wanted a different look for it.
Out comes the ever handy brown acrylic gloss paint and voila!
The plinth got it's coat of varnish. This might look obnoxious to some but I am keeping in mind that Ariel is being shown as recently built and furnished with new Victorian furniture as of 1880's -1900 and thus everything will look ... new. I am pleased that the wine glass looks okay next to the bottle of wine.
