Not Too Shabby Chalkboard

Good morning, Lovelies! I'm so happy you're here today! 
This is a chalkboard I made from a plain black frame...

Here's how it's done:
1. Spray paint your frame and  use sandpaper to shabby it up.
2. Make rosettes from different color burlap and lace.
3. Use funky embellishments for the centers (I used shells, starfish and sand dollar buttons) and hot glue the rosettes to the frame.
 4. Paint the glass with chalkboard paint (I used Americana)

And you're all done!
Can you tell I'm so ready for some beach time? 
It's been such beautiful weather here and the sand and sea are calling my name! 

Thank you again for stopping by! Have a wonderful, sunny week!

  5. Very cute! I usually use spray chalk paint on glass. I will have to check out Americana. I've had a hard time finding a chalk board paint that will work on glass, besides the spray kind.


Thank you so much for your sweet comment! I can't wait to read it! :0)
