Chalkboard Restyle From "Art"

March 24, 2013

Shabby Chic Framed Chalkboard

I found this frame and painting in a free box at a yard sale. It had issues. The painting wasn’t even in the frame. I loved the frame’s shape, but the painting…not so much. I took both parts because the board fit the frame and I knew I could reuse it as something else.

A chalkboard is born. I flipped the board over and painted the back with chalkboard paint.

The frame color didn’t appeal to me either. I painted it white and sanded it to distress.

I loved the look when I finally put them back together. Since the painting was showing on the back I covered the back with brown paper. I also moved the hanger so that the longest area of the chalkboard was hanging horizontally.

I liked it, but it was a bit boring until I added a burlap bow.

Free art with a purpose!
