Thrift Store Frame Updated Into a Chalkboard

Hey there!  It's Friday!!!  I LOVE Friday nights....I always have.  We pretty much have no plans for tomorrow during the day....I love wide open Saturdays with nothing on the agenda!

I found this boring oak frame at a thrift shop just waiting for me to scoop it up and give it a face lift...:)!

I put a coat of primer and then a few coats of a "minty" blue/green latex paint on it....not sure of the exact color as it was found on the "oops" paint shelf at my local Home Depot.  The picture doesn't portray the color really is a pretty and soft color.  I painted the plastic part of the frame with chalkboard paint.  Lastly, I also chose to distress the frame.  Here she is now...I think looking much better.

Have a fab Friday night!!

  1. Great idea to add the chalkboard paint - I might do that with some of our old frames!

  2. Oh I've gotta get me one of these !!! What a really cute project , thank you for sharing !

  3. Love it! I just made one of these, too, but chalk painted the frame. I rather like the lighter color of your frame against the chalkboard paint. Hmmmmm...time to reconsider.

  4. Thank you so much for linking up to Monday Funday :) Your chalkboard frame turned out great!

  5. That is lovely--the chalkboard paint looks great! I think I have to try this!
