Before and After

Before: Ronchy (is that a real word...?) old frame and kind of unattractive painting from Goodwill.



After: Frame with a fresh coat of paint and a little sanding for a "distressed look", 2x3ft. piece of wood with a couple coats chalkboard paint...Homemade Chalkboard!

I can't believe you didn't want that beautiful goodwill masterpiece hanging in your living room. for all to see. Or above your bed, even better. :) I love that idea, I have yet to play with chalkbaord paint, my cousin just painted the sides of her kids' dresser with it and they love it! That is such a good idea, your so crafty, I still want that corner shelf made out of a door. :) We miss you guys!

That turned out awesome! I love it! So when i looked at our Good Will for old paintings, they were charging more for them than a brand new frame at Hobby Lobby would cost me! What a rip-off! So I'm still wishing to do a cool frame project, but have not found cheap frames yet. . . but yours looks awesome!

Yay! You can see our blog now!!! Good to hear that you guys are doing well (despite the rigorous schedule that school entails--almost finished with the first year!!) Good to be in touch again. We accepted the job offer in Salem, so unless we get a significantly higher paying offer--here we come!

Love the pictures of your kids--and you are one of the craftiest people I know!! I love the chalk board!

Love the chalk board. What a cute idea. I might have to give it a try. I just realized that I made my blog private and never sent you an invite, so post your email address and I'll send you one. Hope things are still going well for you.
