Hello, and Happy 4th, a day early! What are your plans for the day? Tomorrow we will be having friends over thru out the day and evening, for a cookout, time on the lake, then fireworks over the lake. Oh, and a boat parade around the lake at noon:)
So, I thought I would take a break from preparing for the festivities, and share with you one of my latest transformations.
You know how much I love creating chalkboards from found frames. Well, here is my latest, and I must say all time biggest, vintage framed chalkboard! This puppy is huge, measuring nearly 5 feet long! I wish that I had saved a photo of her "before", but I accidentally deleted it, ooops! Anyway, it's made of a heavy resin, similar to Syroco. I happened to find her last summer when we flew home for a quick visit. She was at a yard sale, looking none too pretty with her dirty gold frame and a, well, lets just say rather homely looking and equally dirty old print.
Since she was so big, and not about to fit into our carry on bags, I stored her at my Mom's house, til we moved back here this spring. A good cleaning, some Heirloom White, and a new masonite board (cut by hubby) covered in chalkboard vinyl, and she is much, much happier!
The exciting news is that I placed her in my Etsy shop, and a bride to be purchased it for use at her wedding! Yeah!
On a side note, I do want to thank you all for your prayers for my Mom. This past week has been very difficult, and just knowing that you've been praying brings much comfort.
Enjoy your day tomorrow, and stay safe!
