Bon Jour Mon Amis!
If you visit me on a regular basis, you know how much I love chalkboards! So today I thought I'd share with you some of my latest creations that I've placed in my Etsy shop.
I was thrilled to discover this vintage Syroco frame last week. Of course it was "gaudy gold" when I found her! It's amazing what some Heirloom White and a little tlc can do, don't you think?
Actually, this chalkboard has a little secret!
She's also a mirror! I added chalkboard vinyl to the reverse side of the mirror. So, just flip it over for a totally new look!
Next, I painted a large wooden frame a pretty baby blue (my favorite color!).
I think this would be great in a baby boy's room!
For this oblong chalkboard, I made a bit of departure in my usual color palette.
I painted the frame a metallic gold, followed by some distressing.
Then, I added some red and burnt umber paint, to give it Old World appeal, and highlight all of the wonderful details.
Ok, this large cream chalkboard is one of my favorites. It's huge!
The pictures just don't do it justice!
|Powerful words for difficult times.|
I found the frame at a garage sale earlier this summer. It actually had a mirror in it, that ended up breaking as I was trying to remove it from the frame (phooey!). So, I knew that was a good excuse to turn it into a chalkboard for moi! It was gold when I found it, so I could hardly wait to give it my Heirloom White treatment! Believe it or not, the frame is molded plastic, but you'd never guess! It really has the look of carved wood!
Only a few short days before hubby and I leave for France! I am so excited, I don't know if I'll be able to sleep the night before we go!
Hope you all have a great weekend!
