Terrific Under Ten Tuesdays

This is nothing new in blogland but when my oldest granddaughter saw my chalkboard she asked me if I’d make her one of course I said I would.
I had found this frame and picture at GW for $2.99, very 80’s or 90’s, and figured I could use the frame someday and that day came today!
Here’s a closer look at the frame, it’s a long, thin frame
I used Behr Cottage White, because I have alot of it left yet, and put about 3 coats of it on. When I do craft I’m so messy, I try not to be but it always works out that way!
I used Valspar blackboard paint (14.99) on the picture part and did about 4 coats on it. I’d love to try the clay pots this spring they have on the label wouldn’t you? They would look so nice on my potting bench too!
Here it is, I rotated this picture BTW I’m patting myself on the back because I didn’t have to consult the direction book.LOL
I hope she likes it♥
I’m joining this party today:
Terrific Under Ten Tuesdays with Kindra
Thanks so much Kindra for hosting this fun party!

Thanks for the idea Rondell, I'm loving the chalkboard paint. I see long skinny frames all the time, passing them by. Not anymore! Thanks for the idea, I loved your last post too by the way. I'm lightening things up in my house. I've been thinking of changing my blog name.

Thanks for posting this. I haven't tried the chalkboard paint yet and I didn't know you could paint over a picture. That's good to know!

I love your new blog and decorating style. Your house is coming along nicely!

Woohoo! You know you are rockin it when you grandkids ask for one too! I really like this one. It's so versatile and would even look great displayed horizontally. Thanks for all your sweet comments and encouragement today I really appreciate it!
