Hi friends! Welcome to day two of March Madness! I’m hanging in there pretty well so far, don’t you think? 🙂
Today I’m sharing some pretty fancy chalkboards.
Here is how they started:
Ooh gold is pretty fancy, right? I picked these up at an estate sale for $10 for all three!!! Two of them had paintings in them when I bought them. The prices were SO cheap!
I decided to paint them and add chalk boards to them.
Here they are all dressed up and ready to go to market:
I love the gold showing through though:
I made the little bags out of scrap fabric to hold a couple of pieces of chalk…
I tried to get these done quickly to get them in my booth before Christmas. Funny that all three sold the week after Christmas!
I used hardboard (like pegboard but without the holes), and Rustoleum spray chalkboard paint to create the chalkboard panels. I also seasoned them by rubbing the entire surface with chalk and wiping away, although they look pretty clean in the photos.
You can see more of the how-to in this post.
Hope you enjoyed this quick redo!
This is only day two of 31 days of thrifty goodness, so we have a ways to go! If you missed yesterday’s thrifty redo, you can find it here.
