Reviving an Old Picture

My sister-in-law gave me this picture of a little chapel a very long time ago.  It is a Home Interior product, and  the year 1987 is stamped on the back, so it has been around for 25 years.

 I came across the picture last Saturday when I was shopping the basement and brought it upstairs.  Once upstairs, I decided to give the frame a coat of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.  

 Once I let the paint dry, I simply sanded it with a sanding block but didn't add any wax.  I really do like the frame painted Old White.

Now, where to place it?  First I put it in a corner in the dining room.

 We were unable to enjoy it placed in the corner of the dining room, so I moved it into the foyer. Now it is seen when you enter the front door.

 I think I found the perfect spot.  Don't you?
