I was able to talk Nick into stopping by the Goodwill once again. I picked up this frame with intentions of making it a chalkboard, but that didn’t happen. It is a long story and I am too upset to talk about it. HA!
Here is the before (only $4!!): I kind of felt bad for the hard work that someone put into the cross-stitch…almost.
I gave the glass and frame a quick cleaning…Yuck!
Sanded the frame and wiped clean….
This picture frame had two mats inside (score!). Obviously the brown was not going to work, so I simply flipped it over and now we have white!
I just used $25 cent scrapbook paper to finish off the look. I LOVE IT!
I also spray painted the magnetic memo board to match. Notice something else?
I bought the perfect size chalkboard for the lamp. Maybe this will encourage mother nature to get with it!
This is not the after, but we will say the in between:
