I’ve been trying to get ready for Glendale Crossing days. I’ve always had great success with chalkboards, the larger the better.
A great resource for large chalkboards is repurposed artwork pieces. I picked this frame up for a a few bucks at a junk store. (I secretly worry that I’m going to someday paint over a masterpiece!)
I taped it off with some ScotchBlue, then used this wonderful Krylon Dual spray paint on the frame. I LOVE the color!
Then, I painted it with chalkboard paint. There’s a blemish over on the right where there was some wear in the crushed velvet. I thought about gluing some ribbon or something all the way around where the velvet is. Any suggestions for an easy fix? It’s not nearly as noticeable in real life.
I got this frame last week at a yard sale for $2.50. It’s really large!
It can be hung either way, landscape or portrait.
Here are some easy chalkboards that have sold really quickly in the last few years:
I LOVE chalkboards! I use two in my kitchen all the time. I wonder how I ever got along without them, oh wait, I know! I was younger and I didn’t have to write everything down in order to remember it! Is that happening to YOU yet?
I have a couple more that I can make for Glendale if I find the time. If something doesn’t sell at Glendale, at least now I have a place to sell it. (my booth)
