    How hard can it be to restore a 19th century painting?

    Apparently a lot harder than expected. Some of you may want to put your drinks down and make sure you have nothing breakable within reach before viewing.

    See, this is what happens when you don't brush your teeth kids. That is one bad case of toothache.

    You missed out the middle picture which showed it in a really bad state before the botched job. Wonder what they'll do now.

    I laughed so hard just at the expression in the changed version. Just picturing a crazy old woman "I'm gonna fix that shit. I don't know how to paint but how hard can it be".

    I like how she didn't bother to ask too. "I'll surprise them!"

    Aah! I nearly died a little there. Good thing you warned us about the drinks.
    Jesus Christ, that's like vandalism. Well intent, but still.. wow.

    Maybe the vicar said something about Passover, and her 80 year old ears heard "paint-over".

    If it was just the blank empty patches messed up that would be one thing but no. She says to herself I have to paintover everything.
