Making Chalkboards

Rustic Romance Chalkboards

Here is what I have been working on this week.  Chalkboards!  I have been re-purposing some old pictures with frames and freshening up the frames with some paint and then covering over the artwork with a couple of coats of chalkboard paint.  Let me show you some of the ugliness that lies beneath on the “Baby it’s cold outside” piece. :)

Quite the transformation if I do say so myself.  I also scored some amazingly old and in great shape Mason Jars that I am busy with.  I hope to have something to show you in the next few days on that front.  I am so happy the weekend is here!  I haven’t even started decorating the house yet for Christmas.  I am hoping to catch some seriously lacking Christmas spirit soon!  How about you?  Are you all decorated and ready for the holidays this year?

Love your chalkboards, Lisa, and what you put on them! I'm done here and it's simple, but I still have a Christmas feel and it will make it easier to put it away.

Love your chalkboards! Those came out great! I've been wanting to chalk board something around here! lol. A few months ago when it was still warm out I did a couple old shutters and a couple vintage trays. I'm just about done with decorating, and I'm excited its December 1st! Happy weekend & happy decorating! Hugs, Holly

I have lightly decorated only because I don't like the task of putting it all away after New Years. Yes, I am rather lazy in that respect. :-)
