She wanted a chalkboard frame to write herself notes.
And yes this is her handwriting--freehand.
She can print in font--it is amazing!
I love the details on this frame.
It's plastic, but after spray painting it I don't think anyone would know it.
- Thrifted frame--opening 11 x 15 and outside edge measure 22 x 18 inches.
- Removed the glass and cut a board to fit the frame opening.
- Rustoleum Chalkboard paint--do about 3-4 coats on the board and then prep and season your chalkboard before the first use. Usually you need to wait 24 hrs. after last coat is dry before seasoning.
- Thrifted frame painted with Rustoleum Black--I think I used a satin, but it might of been a matte. Definitely not much sheen to it.
- Her recycled shutters headboard post here.
This is the window side of her basement bedroom. We FINALLY got the orange-ish walls (check the first pic to see the previous color--sort of) painted a nice white which makes a huge difference. I still need to get rid of the dark brown wood blinds, but I haven't figured out what other window treatment to do. So for the moment we've added the tissue paper flowers to try and "disguise" the window a little. It was cheap and easy until we know what we are going to do permanently.
