This post is a long time coming-
the search for the perfect chalkboard for my daughter's wedding!
I told you about my dilemma with the large ornate frame I bought at Goodwill which was going to make the perfect chalkboard for my daughter's wedding- I painted it and let it dry outside only to have it crumble in a flash rain storm! Oh, the trials of a DIY'er!!
So, I had been on the hunt for a new frame that would do the trick-
I found the perfect specimen, once again, at my fave GW outlet and it was attached to a canvas picture- maybe I'll have less work this time? Or, maybe not!
A lovely beach scene with a broken fence!
I wiped it down thoroughly, removing dirt and cobwebs accumulated over the years.
I gave it two good, but light coats and let it dry in the sun...when all of a sudden, I heard some rumbling thunder in the distance- OH NO- not this time and I scooped it up and let it dry inside!! Two frames for the same project destroyed by Mother Nature- not this time
I painted the chalkboard paint on with a foam roller-
My spray painting with chalkboard paint gets out of control!
I painted the frame white but instead of spray this time, I used my fave Annie Sloan-
Chalk paint on a chalk board sounds like a match made in heaven-
and the best part was it only cost me $3
And perfect for the wedding!
My uber talented sister used her amazing skills to create exactly what my daughter wanted!
It was a work of art- thanks again Ellen!!
Take care, gotta fly-
