My hubby and I have been hitting the little auction on Friday nights. One thing that I have been bidding on are pictures and frames. I have so many ideas in mind for them. I have been wanting to make a chalk board for my kitchen wall. This is what I came up with.
As you can see I haven't hung it yet, but I wanted to share it!! So, the question is.....should I add white paint to the frame and distress it? Or leave it as is? Want to see how it started? Well of course you do!! I bought this picture for $5 at the auction.
I tried to rough up the glass using steel wool, next time I will use a fine sand paper. Apparently the paint adheres better that way. I cleaned the glass with rubbing alcohol and taped off the frame. I used spray paint chalk. And gave it about 3 coats. After waiting at least 24 hours I cured the chalk board with chalk and then wiped it off. Yesterday I bought chalk paint in the can, my friend Laurie says that is the way to go. We will see!!!
