Hello everyone! Hope you all had a great Christmas! It's hard to believe that it's over with already. I don't know about you, but I'm so not looking forward to taking down decorations! It's just not nearly as fun as putting them out!!
Now that Christmas is over, I finally had some time to work on a drab to fab makeover. It felt so good to play again in my craft room!
Here is a sneak peek of the "after"!
And here is the "before"! I found this wood framed chalkboard several weeks ago, in dire need of some love! I knew right away that light pink would be the perfect color for this beauty in the making!
So, I pulled out my "chalky finish" paints by DecoArt, and found just the right shade of pink that I was looking for!
I really love the beautiful carved floral and leaf design on the frame, which was hidden in that dark brown finish.
So much better now, I think! I also really love the sweet little built in ledge, perfect for an eraser and chalk!
I gave it a generous dose of distressing, then followed with a poly sealer, also by DecoArt.
Oh, and I recovered the old chalkboard with chalkboard vinyl, for a nice clean and fresh look.
I've placed this cutie in my Etsy shop, if you care to take a look!
Have a great weekend!
