To re-paint or not re-paint?

That is the question. I scored some IKEA frames from the RSPCA op-shop this week for a dollar and I have made them into little art pieces for kid's rooms. I like that they are a little scuffed and I'd hang them as is - but, for a listing on Etsy should I buff them and re-paint them? 

Personally I think using new paint is a bit of a waste and detratcs a little from the whole  upcycle/recycle thing. What would you do - or would you buy one as-is for about AU$10?  

Oh, and if you like me style, I have a giveaway running for a few more days - just click here to enter.

omg it would be a pain in the ass to repaint those frames! i am so lazy! i can't imagine repainting them. then again i wouldn't want to hear the complaints from etsy buyers if they wanted them in perfect condition. d'oh! maybe you could say them come as is in imperfect frames. maybe?
