I linked over at Centsational Girl for the Spring Fling link party to show off my diy chalkboard. I didn't take a before picture of what this looked like when I bought it at the thrift store, but imagine a foamboard poster with a navy blue plastic frame. Ugly. I took out the foam board and painted it with chalkboard paint and painted the frame Benjamin Moore's White Dove. I really wanted a distressed frame but when I realized that the frame was actually plastic and not wood (much later after I had already bought it and brought it home), I had to come up with a different plan. I bought Folk Art Antiquing Medium in Wooden Bucket and transformed this ugly frame into what looks like an antiqued wood. Score!! I also discovered Chalk Ink found at Michael's Arts and Crafts store. It goes on like a marker and dries to a chalk. Genius.
Happy Spring everyone!!!
