Because Chalkboard

Monique (BFF/ biz partner) and I will be doing a vendor event on November 9th at a local restaurant to benefit Ronald McDonald House of the Hudson Valley.  It will be our first event as a team so we're pretty excited!

I picked up a bunch of unfinished wood frames at Michaels for $1.  I knew I could do something with them!  I also picked up some unfinished wooden rectangles that fit nicely over the opening of the frames.  My head is always swimming with creative ideas (it's an illness really lol).

I decided to paint a couple of frames with Annie Sloan Versailles (my current fav).  I painted two coats on the frames.  I then painted my rectangles with black chalkboard paint.

I sanded the frames (my fav part of working with Annie Sloan paint) just a bit.

I made three rolled roses out of muslin and hot glued them to the corner of my frame.  Then I hot glued the chalkboard pieces to the frame.

Lastly, I printed out the saying "I love you because..." in black vinyl and applied that to the frames.

I think they came out cute!  They will definitely be making an appearance at the vendor event!


I loove me some comments! Hugs!
