CHALK IT UP!




THIS IS A PROJECT THAT 
I HAD A LOT OF FUN PUTTING
TOGETHER...

THIS IS WHAT I STARTED 
WITH...

NOT SURE WHAT IS WAS
MAYBE A MIRROR. FOR
4.99 I COULD'NT LEAVE WITHOUT
IT...


A LITTLE CHALKBOARD SPRAY PAINT
AND SOME GREEN PAINT AND
HARDWARE AND THIS IS WHAT I 
ENDED UP WITH...

I'M NOT THE GREATEST ARTIST 
BUT I THOUGHT THIS WAS A FUN
THING TO DRAW ON THE CHALK
BOARD THAT WENT WITH THE
LILAC BUSH I HUNG IT IN TO
TAKE THE PICTURES...




ADDED AN OLD FURNITURE PULL
TO HOLD THE CHALK...


AND A WROUGHT IRON 
PIECE I TOOK FROM A 
POT RACK, THE POT RACK
IT'S SELF I WILL BE USING FOR
A FUTURE PROJECT.


AND THERE YOU HAVE IT
A QUICK EASY JOB YOU
CAN DO TO HAVE A CUSTOM
PIECE FOR YUR HOME OFFICE,
OR WHEREVER YOU CHOOSE TO
PUT IT.






HOPE YOU LIKE IT..

  18. what a cool frame to find for a chalkboard! I have been making them too and using those same cool looking drawer pulls for chalk as well. I don't think it's that easy to draw with chalk and your drawing doesn't even look bad at all!

  23. I love your chalkboard!! I have one I want to make that looks so much like it. I hope this doesn't sound like a stupid question, but do you just use the chalkboard paint right on the paper background?? I have been waiting to do mine because I wasn't sure what to use for the paint :/...thanks so much in advance!

  26. i don't get your feed in my email so i signed up for it just now and it says that i'm already signed up. hmmm.

    any ideas about that? i don't want to miss a thing going on over here!

  27. I'm a new linky follower :)

    Anyway, had a huge comment typed out and it disappeared. I just picked up a very similar shaped item at a flea market two weeks ago for $5. It definitely was a mirror. I know this because it broke just before I bought it! I wanted it for the frame anyway, so it was all good. My plans for it also include making it a chalkboard, but i am going to have to steal your chalk holder idea. much better than what I had planned.
