Antique Mirror Repurposed

Welcome lovely Friends to day #4 of my March Madness, 31 Thrifty Makeovers in 31 Days series!

Fancy Chalkboards

Hi friends! Welcome to day two of March Madness! Today I'm sharing some pretty fancy chalkboards. Here is how they started: Ooh gold is pretty fancy, right?

Here they are all dressed up and ready to go to market:   Not quite as fancy as the gold, but still pretty fancy for … [Read more...]
