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!
