Chalk It Up!

On my last visit to our local thrift store I bought a frame and mirror combo. It wasn’t really my style… but I saw potential!

It had been at the thrift store for a couple of months and was 50% off! YES!

Here it was before:

Why yes, I had already removed the mirror, pictures and hooks before I realized I didn’t take a “before” picture. My bad.

Here’s the after:

It turned out awesome! I simply sprayed the mirror with 3 heavy coats of chalkboard spray paint, sprayed the frame white and covered the photo slots with some leftover fabric! Love!

I now have a place to hang my apron! Sometimes it can be out of sight, out of mind. But not for this lady anymore. 🙂

Need to leave a memo or remember something? No problem! We have the perfect spot!

My hubby liked it too. Double bonus. 🙂

It’s truly amazing what a simple “homey” touch like this can do to a space. It kind of makes me want to bake, hence the towel. 🙂

So in all, I spent $10. Pretty sweet price for a happy chalkboard owner.
