I’m always picking up inexpensive framed pictures at the flea market, junk shop, thrift store, or wherever. Sometimes I remove the picture and paint the frame for resale. And sometimes if the picture is in good shape I will paint over it with chalkboard paint.
A few of my finds waiting for chalkboard paint. There is a heavy plate made of some kind of metal, two nicely framed pictures, and a tiny framed print. There is also a large vintage board with some kind of print glued to it. I’ve already painted the frame green, the same with the white distressed wood plaque.
The detail on this frame is gorgeous. Looks like wood but it’s a heavy molded plastic. I removed the glass and will paint over the heavy paper board to cover the lovely lady. I know some of you are like, WHAT!!!!!
I like to work with several pieces at a time. I wonder through my thrifty finds and gather everything that fits into the project plan!
Chalkboard paint is relatively inexpensive. I buy the brush on kind in the quart size.
Another trick is to pick out frames and pieces that have hangers already attached so that’s one thing less to deal with. See , I’m always thinking of the shortcut!
