Tuesday Time to Tackle: Chalkboard Makeover

About a month ago, I saw this chalkboard in a thrift store.  I thought it looked cute, and I knew it had potential, but I didn't buy it then.  I waited a couple of weeks.  When I saw it again, it was marked half-off:  time to buy! 


I didn't know exactly how to transform it from blah to wow, but then I found inspiration from my friend, Cindy.  Check out this post from her blog.  She is so creative!  If it weren't for her, I probably wouldn't have thought to use paper to decorate.

I repainted the chalkboard with chalkboard paint, then glued patterned paper to the frame.  I added a few flowers, and printed photos for the empty spaces.  Voila!  Now this is ready to be incorporated into the wedding reception in a couple of months.






Thanks for Cindy, who always inspires me!
