Before and After Vintage “Over the Sofa Print”

“Dinosaurs are extinct but, they are alive and well in our imagination”

Now how could dinosaurs have anything to do with a before and after post? I enjoy repurposing things that have lost their “shine” and one of those things I love repurposing is old “sofa pictures.” You know the ones I am talking about, they are printed on the heavy cardboard and generally have some type of landscape theme, or big bouquets of flowers. Usually, I just paint over the picture and voilà, I have a blank canvas that is already framed.  Here is an example of a new painting on an old picture.

This a picture I painted of a friend's dog. I used an old picture to paint on

Below is another of these old “sofa pictures”  I am going to use dinosaurs for the transformation and bring it right back in style. Kind of boring but, still has great color and a nice frame.

this picture is about 4ft long and has a lovely landscape. All the rage back in the day

Here is the “after” with dinosaurs decoupaged into the picture. I will try to get a better picture, so you can see the whole thing.
