A while back I blogged, asking my readers to help me figure out what to do with an old picture frame. You can read about it, here. I finally got around to working on the frame. Here it is, so far.
The plan is to paint a piece of wood, that my husband has in the garage, with chalkboard paint. We (I told my husband I would appreciate his help with this part) will then attach it to the back of the frame. I will have a cool looking chalkboard/memo board when this is done. Old school function and aesthetics.
One old wooden picture frame sanded down. Two coats of robin’s egg blue spray paint. A coat of clear gloss sealer. A leftover piece of thin wood from the garage. A couple coats of chalkboard paint. Attach to back of frame. Add a piece of chalk (an entire box at Wmart is only 78 cents) and an eraser. Then add a cute inspirational message on the board. Perfect.
The other project I currently have under way is this.
I’m going to paint the jars today. I plan on using my jars as candle holders. Perfect for Fall……
Hopefully, by next Tuesday I will have both projects finished for you to see.
