Any time I can find a chalkboard and just repaint the frame, I’ll take it! That was the case with this chalkboard I found at our community garage sale a couple of weeks ago.
I liked the checks on the side of the chalkboard and I thought the overall shape was great. For $5.00 it came home with me. I gave it two coats of Old White chalk paint.
I purchased a wood wreath applique, since that top space seemed to be calling out for something. I painted it black and attached it to the top portion of the chalkboard. After applying a clear and dark wax to the whole piece, I then added some Antique Gold Rub n Buff to the detailed areas of the wreath.
I love its new updated look! Hopefully, someone else will, too, because it’s going to my booth!
