In my last post, there was a picture of this great thrift store frame I snagged one weekend.
I loved the curves in the frame. After getting it home I just knew I wanted to turn it into a chalkboard. After mending the frame a bit and lightly sanding it I painted it with the same green color that we have been using for the other pieces that we have completed lately. (But I promise, this is the last green piece for a while!) After searching all over for a how-to on applying chalkboard paint to glass, I just went for it. I tried sanding lightly first, but I don't think it made a difference. I used four coats in all.
I used this.
Then, I antiqued it using the same method mentioned here. After letting it dry for 24 hours, we got to work putting it back together.
I'm linking up this transformation at these places...
