Chalkboards, Chicken Wire & Burlap

It was time!  Time for what, you ask?  Time to line up all the fun frames I had stored in the garage and give them their long awaited makeovers!
I used everything from Gesso to Chalk Paint and Aging Wax on some of the frame finishes, others I just left in their vintage patina.
 I took my handsome handyman with me down to my space at Furniture Affair and he cheerfully hung them all up on the walls for me.  (I took him out for lunch afterwards.)

Did some rearranging in the space while we were there.
 I just LOVE the little wooden memo clips.  I always like to print out some old photographs or vintage postcards for display.
 I forgot my chalk so I’ll need to make another trip down to add some graphics to my chalkboards.
 If you live in the area, you’ll have to make a trip to Furniture Affair and see all the changes being made.  Walls are being added and the whole store is being rearranged.  Lots of exciting stuff happening!
Hope you are all having a fabulous week!

  1. Great frames, Judy! I love the ornate frames! Love the chalkboards. Once I get the little things I have sitting here made over, I hope to look for some frames and do a few chalkboards and memo boards.

    • Thanks Kathy…there are so many creative things you can do with frames. I would love to do a wall someday of all white frames in a variety of styles. :) Good luck with finishing up all your little projects! :)

  2. Love them all! I have a bunch of frames that I will be making chalkboards with but I also think I’ll use some chicken wire now.
