    Susan, I went to the dollar store here. ( everything in the store is $1.00) no higher. and got their baby vaseline, large jar for only $1.00 and found a super deal at the "Monday special" at goodwill for $1.29 a ugly green painted frame, but its perfect for my first TRIAL and error project, and it only cost me so far, $2.29 total, (plus tax of course) There is also a free offer for a sample of Benjamin Moore paint at their store this week, its only 2 ounces, and only one sample given with their newspaper add, I picked out "yellow rain coat" since it rains so much here in Seattle, hahaha. . I am so excited to try this and if It is ruined.. It only cost me under $2.50. As soon as we get some "dry" weather so I can paint outside I will send you a picture of my project, thanks for your ideas. Thought I would share my super buy finds. Carol
