Updating Thrifty Finds

I found these items for almost nothing at a new consignment shop nearby.

I used white acryllic paint on the frames, then highlighted the corners with gold Rub 'n Buff.  

On the two ceramic pieces, I again used acryllic paint to just brighten them, since they looked faded to me.

The makeovers cost nothing since I already had the paints left from other projects.  I like the updates.  What have you updatd recently?
