Painted Letters

My mom bought me these little, letter plaques at Ross on clearance for 75 cents each. She said that she figured I could do something with them.  Well, after sitting in my to-be-fixed pile for many months, I finally got around to painting one of them.  

The plaque started out a rusty, flat brown with chipped edges.  

Now I just need to paint the other three letters.  

I painted the plaque a pretty shade of pale blue - Martha Stewart's tidewater.  I added some glaze and then gold rub 'n buff along the edges and over the scrolling design.
