Chalkboard Trophy

Good evening to you!  Today got away from me and it's a bit later than I usually blog:)  We are still getting used to this new school schedule....hopefully your school year is going well!  The best part is my son is loving school so far....and we are hoping his excitement continues:)

I scored this trophy this past summer.  The tag under it states that it's from IKEA.....I've never seen these there before.  I quickly scooped it up knowing exactly how I was going to transform it.  I actually received my inspiration from Miss Mustard Seed who is extremely talented on so many levels.  

I gave the outside of the trophy several coats of chalkboard paint.....leaving the inside paint free.  I just love the whimsical feel it now has...don't you?

I hope you enjoy the rest of your week!!
Looks like we are going to enjoy some fantastic weather this we'll have to take advantage of it and enjoy the local parks!!!
