Chalkboard Love! Thrift store Frame revamped to Turquoise Chalkboard!


Every room needs a chalkboard!
The Kitchen
The Entry way
The Laundry room
The Bedroom
The Bathroom
Even the Side Door needs one to welcome guests



This very large chalkboard is painted in my favorite Turquoise
Cozumel, then antiqued with minwax Early American stain.


It started out looking like this!  A Thrift store Frame.



I primed first with spray gray primer, then used 3 coats of chalk board paint - allowing time in between to dry.



I scuffed it up a bit with sand paper, then applied the stain.


Yes, every room needs a chalkboard. So while I had the chalkboard paint out, I made 3 more!



These 3 chalkboards are Home Interior pictures. I remember when I was first married and poor as a church mouse, I wanted these pictures so bad. (what was I thinking) I was invited to home parties and had to pass on the picture buying - we were both in school! All these years later, I want them so bad in a different way - For the Frames!
