I have quite a few frames about 5 x 7” and today I made a few of them into mini magnetic chalkboards. I bought some vinyl chalkboard a while ago but never used it until today. I think these smaller chalkboards are great. They would make great little accent pieces to write seasonal or love notes or even a gentle reminder of something that you, or someone else, needs to do.
I listed two frames in my etsy store today.
This great vintage metal frame.
This is the original patina as I found it. I just cleaned it up and added the metal and chalkboard.
This one is a wood frame that I painted aqua with hints of silver and some light distressing.
I just love aqua but I’m all out so I need to remember to go to the store and get some more aqua paint.
With no aqua I relied on Navajo white, berry pink and sage for a few pieces I started working on today. Here’s a sneak peak:
It is a wonder what some cleaning and a new coat of paint and glaze can do to pieces.
I usually link to these fabulous parties:
