Ornate Frame and Chalkboards2

More painting this week, found a very ornately framed oil painting (mid century modern) of roses and two promising chalkboard projects, one a small tray and one that was originally a large slide in calendar holder (all thrifted). Laid out the newspaper, put on my red painting apron and opened the CeCeCaldwell Simply White Chalk paint, the Rust-oleum Black Chalk Board paint. 

Chalk paint of ANY kind is an ongoing favorite. I love painting stuff.






This is the gold framed turned white. Used MinWax Polycylic as a top coat over 2 coats of CeCeCaldwell Simply White Chalk paint.





I worked on all three projects so that each coat of either white or black had time to dry, mini assembly line.




The dark green frame with masonite insert made a great chalk board. I painted each side of the masonite so the board can be used both sides.



The last project was a small wooden tray. I didn't take a before picture, just an in progress.



It is small, very useful as a backdrop and would be handy for naming and serving.

  26. Those projects are lovely, Joy! I particularly love the picture frame. It's amazing how that ivory paint makes those flowers so much more vivid. And I long to do a chalk-board project ... perhaps this summer!

  27. Wow! Lots of good ideas for using chalk board paint! So far, I've only done one on a silver tray. Thanks for sharing other ways to use this product!

  28. Great job Joy! I am not a gold person at all, but oh baby did the frame turn into a beautiful swan from an ugly duckling. Both chalkboards are fun. I use to have a calender holder just like that first chalkboard. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
    hugs,
