So, What Did She Do With All Those White Frames??

I know this has been a burning question in many people's minds.  Just what have I done with all those white frames I painted and distressed for the wedding?

Well, some are still sitting around waiting for the sale I will be a part of in early November.  These ones are in my little entryway by my front door.

Others I have turned into chalkboards.

Some small.

Got two metal stands at a garage sale today that hold them up nicely.

Some are larger.  It is very easy to apply the chalkboard paint to the glass in a picture frame or a mirror.

I bought this mirror today at a garage sale and intend to turn it into a chalkboard on a stand.  I like the wood so I'm not going to paint it, just buff it up a bit. I can just picture it greeting people as they walk into someone's home.

You can see a couple of other projects I'm working on in the reflection...

Got a great bargain on some burlap bags this week and found an old stool at the thrift.

Will paint and distress the stool and recover the cushion with the burlap - I notice more and more things like that turning up in shops - might as well join the trend.

Hope the upcoming week is great for all of you!

Good luck with the sale in November!

I like your frames, and the chalkboard paint is a nice addition!

The new older wood frame is also great!

By the way, is the sweet Boston, to the right Sadie? She looks adorable!
Have a good week!!!

What an idea ~ picture frames to chalk boards. A " I don't know what to do with it~ " to a "For sale for only $10.00 ." Does chalk come with it ? Where are all the 4 legged helpers ?
