Chalk Board Art

I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend.  Two of my very best friends came to visit and we had such a good time!  I loved having them here and was sad to see them go.  Before they arrived I found this frame at my favorite Goodwill Store and had to snag it up.  It was $4.00--no brainer.

I had definite plans for it.  I've been listening to my Avnett Brothers CD a lot in the car and I wanted to do something with one of their lyrics, so this is what came of it.

First I spray painted the frame with Rustoleum Granite in a Satin finish.

I then painted over it with Annie Sloan's Chalk Paint in Paris Grey.  I wanted you to be able to see the contrast and make it look a little worn, so I distressed in a few places.

I used a piece of plywood and cut it to fit where the old beautiful (ha) photo was.

 I painted the plywood with chalk board spray paint and secured it into the frame.

 For under $15.00 you have a great piece to put in your home.  Tine and I talked about it and this would be great for Thanksgiving to put the menu or for everyone to write what they are thankful for.
