I found this picture in the clearance bin at Hobby Lobby for $4! So I bought two of them!
I knew exactly what I wanted to do to it...
Make it into a chalkboard for my boys room.
Here are the results of the first frame...
Here is the before picture:
And here is the after:
It was a fairly easy process. I took apart the frame and flipped the "Dream" picture around and spray painted the back of the picture with Chalkboard Spray Paint from Krylon. I did about 3 coats of paint.
We used blue spray paint, also from Krylon, to paint the frame. I did a couple coats as well. Then
I took sandpaper and distressed the frame a little.
I'm loving the way it looks! And I really like the blue paint. My boys picked out the color and I wasn't sure how it would turn out, but I think it looks fantastic! I was tempted to put it in my kitchen to write our weekly menu on, but the boys were too excited to use it. I still have that other frame though.. :)
