Bought this old frame with a "fake" painting at a thrift store a while back for about $5, if that. Actually had it hanging in the bedroom for a while, then I just got tired of it's depressing state, so I put it away. When I did my Spring cleaning this year (in the Summer) I found it again...went out and bought me some chalkboard paint (used Rust-Oleum Chalk-Board latex paint)....
And turned this.......into that.
Then prepped it with these little steps.
Wrote a little message...like this one.
And hung it in the kitchen, on the refrigerator, using velcro.
I chose the fridge because I plan to use it to write 'to do' lists, grocery lists, recipes, little love notes, etc. I think it adds a bit of coziness to the kitchen. I'm loving it.
Now I have left over chalkboard paint (remember I also painted THIS with the paint)...oh what else should I paint? I'm hooked.
