Frames Frames Frames -- I can NEVER get enough frames -- or chalkboard paint for that matter.
And with that winning combination, let me share with you today's project :)
Last month was my bestie's birthday. And not only has she been my best friend since high school, she's also the loving soul behind One Girl, One Beautiful Life. She had JUST moved into a cute little apartment and I wanted to give her something decor-esque, but also something she could USE too. Enter the chalkboard frame. I started with this find from a local thrift store. The frame had cute little designs on it, so I snatched this puppy up.
This framed print reminds me of the one I used for my fabric whiteboard a while back -- I wonder if they were some sort of set?!?!
I removed the frame and spray-painted it green (one of her favorite colors) and then I painted the glass with my beloved chalkboard paint. I also took some ribbon (the same I used for my welcome sign) and attached it to the back and tied it on top for a pretty bow. Ready for the final project?
I also gave her one of those cool chalkboard pens ....which are AWESOME! Isn't that green fantastic!?!
I just LOVE finding unique frames....I seriously could have my whole house covered in gorgeous, character-filled frames and never get tired of them. I think Becca likes the frame too. :)
