The Chalkboard I Let Go......

About 4 weeks ago, we had some extremely nice weather,
and our 1st garage sales of the year.

I believe there were 2-4 listed.

I was brave and took the boys with me to a couple.

I'm glad I did.

I scored big time on some large wooden picture frames.

Here is the original frame and picture before.
I paid $3.00 for this picture.

I coated the original picture with about 3 layers of chalkboard paint,
which we had left over from our chalkboard project.

Then spray painted the frame with a couple of coats of Rustoleum Aqua in Satin.

To distress the chalkboard, I sanded the paint and then applied a coat of wax.

I loved the detail on this picture frame!!

I loved the size (52" x 28") of this frame!!

However, not knowing our wall space in the new rental, I let this one go. :(

I sold her on Craigslist in 1 day for $25,
which added to our wishlist fund!! :)

I still have 6 frames left to paint to try to sell before we move.

She was my biggest frame though.

I believe I already have one sold to another customer!! Yea!!

I'm just waiting on warmer weather to venture out into the garage.

  1. Wow, your chalk board and frame turned out great. Thank you so much for using Rust-Oleum and best of luck on your other projects!

    Btw, we just posted on our Rust-Oleum Facebook page, asking people if they've used our Chalk Board paint. Feel free to join the conversation and add in your expertise.

    Happy Wednesday!
