Chalkboard and Bird
Free bin at a Sunday garage sale - frame with a board and a pottery bird.
Bird before (above) and after one coat of Simply White (below).
The long tail had been repaired and was secure. The white paint certainly covered the joined pieces. 2 coats of paint. Dried in the sunshine and then a coat of clear wax.
I painted the wooden frame with two coats of (dried in sunshine between coats) CeCeCaldwell Santa Fe Turquoise and when it was dry one coat of CeCeCaldwell Clear Wax and later polished with a clean cloth.
The small frame with the wooden back board was just right for a small Chalkboard.
Just a reminder - when using chalkboard paint wash it off your skin and brush as soon as possible. It tends to get harder to remove as time passes. The chalkboard got 3 coats of Rust-oleum Chalk Board paint. I paint downward for first coat, then across for second and down for third. It was sunny and warm so drying time went quickly. After the chalkboard has dried, cure it by rubbing chalk all over and then rubbing the chalk off with a clean rag.
The wooden chalkboard was nailed into place. I used my swivel headed Picture Framing/Glazier's hammer (Lee Valley) and 1/2 inch nails.
Then the paper backing was measured, cut and rough fitted, trimmed a bit more and glued in place.
I hung the chalkboard outside.
A simple and useful project.
Thanks for visiting today.
I will be back again on Thursday.
