Buh-bye Butterfly!

As you all know I am in the process of trying to create a picture wall for the living room.
 Well I thought I had a TON of black frames to help me out with it, I buy them whenever I see  them on sale and stock pile them until I need them!  But,  it seems I goofed a little, cause when I pulled this one out of the closet it had this all over it!

I mean can you imagine!  I almost threw the offending frame out on the spot, how could I totally not have noticed that when I bought it!  I think I went a little crazy a while back, JoAnn's was having a frame sale and I think I was blinded by the 75% off.  After a quick glance at the other frames, it seems this is the only one that came with this extra little surprise.  Good, but now what was I going to do with it?
 I couldn't find the receipt or I definitely would have returned it!  So, it sat in the closet for a few months until I pulled it out the other day and got to thinking.   
( sorry about the blanket, I was terribly cold while I was working on this!)
First, I tried scratching it off.... but that didn't work, which I seriously couldn't believe. What was this stuff made out of??  Hmmmm, now what?  Then I pulled out one of these....

Mr. Clean® Magic Eraser® Extra Power

Yup, extra power! Then I got to work, and boy did I work, this stuff seriously did not want to come off!
But I'm stubborn and I needed the frame.  I'm trying to work with what I have people!  haha!  At least I got an arm workout!
It took about thirty minutes,  but I got the stubborn little butterfly off, thank goodness!

See totally butterfly free!
Now it's ready for me to add a picture!


  1. Those sponges are the BEST ! EVER!! I love them!! LOL!

  2. How frustrating. Glad you got it off AND got some exercise in the meantime


I'd love to know what you think! Thanks for reading!
