Barndoor Craigslist

Hand painted

I went on a basement clearing mission today and put several items on Craigslist.  I recently sold an item on there and found it to be an excellent alternative to ebay which has been a hassle a few times.

One of the most interesting items I have for sale is a old schwinn frame that I attempted to handpaint using a brush and oil paints.  At first it went really well, I blended and smoothed out the colors and it looked nice, but the paint wouldn’t dry.  I had fingerprints and marks all over it.  I got annoyed and started just sort of sticking paint on it allover, I thought I was like Dario Pegoretti but it just didn’t work out. 

The bike is too small for me, or anyone I know, but I hope someone can find a use for it.
