I've recently inherited some very old statues of Mary and the Infant of Prague. This statue of Mary may be too "shabby" for the shabby chic look I prefer!
I like the aged creamy white and the chips have character, but I can't help but think how much prettier I can paint her.
Would you keep her as-is, or take the chance and change her?
She'd still be old, but with a fresher appearance.
Seems a waste to let her fall into ruin.
What would you do?
