I got crafty..Yes, me. {Goodwill transformations}

I started out with these Goodwill Gems... (Ignore the kitten, she is a bit of a camera hog)

Here we have a wonderfully awful picture, but the frame is fab. It cost $1.75. The Ornate Gold mirror was about $2.00. It had potential. The Paris plaque was .99. I wasn't sure what I would do with that...but I got it anyway! lol

Here's what I did with the picture.

Some spray paint,  chalkboard spray paint and some painters tape to make sure said paint goes where it's suppose to AND-----
 Ugly picture transformed into a fabulous chalkboard!

BTW- I just spray painted the Chalkboard paint right over the glass.

Here's what I did with the ornate gold mirror.


Now, here's the plaque!

Now I just have to figure out what I am going to write on it!

These frames are so cute. I love thrifting and turning something old into something new again. Love the colors.

Very cool Michelle!! How did you do the lettering on the plaque? Is that a decal you printed or vinyl lettering? Way cool!!

Michelle Underwood said...

Tara- That's just a watermark. I added it in my graphics program. For the life of me, I can't think of what to write on that plaque. It's sitting there naked! lol

I love it all Michelle! Aqua blue is one of my favorite colors and I can't believe how much better that mirror looks after you painted it! Plus I am just thrilled you linked up to MY party because I've been a fan of your kits for awhile. I have your All I Want and So Chic freebie kits and they were some of the ones I learned how to digi scrap with! Thank you for joining us at A Crafty Soiree!
