Decor Elements Chalkboard

SO what do you do when you have a piece of artwork hanging in your dining room and you no longer like it? Throw it out and go buy something new? Not anymore. I had a picture that I bought over 7 years ago when we moved into this house. It's pretty big, measuring 42"x 30". At the time, I was just "filling walls". The picture was ok, but I didn't love it. Well fast forward to 7 years later, and I still don't love it. In fact, I'm pretty sick of looking at it! So I got out my trusty spray paint and painted the frame white. Then I bought some chalkboard paint and rolled that on the glass. I rolled on 3 coats of the chalkboard paint. Right over the glass. The picture is still under the glass in fact. I purchased a Decor Element with this project in mind. After the chalkboard paint cured for about a week, I applied the Decor Element. And this is the final project. It is hanging in my dining room and we love it! I must say we don't have a formal dining room, and most people probably wouldn't want something like this in their dining room, maybe a kitchen. I didn't have any wall space in my kitchen, so it's here in my dining room. I will probably use it as a menu board for my family.


The Decor Elements is a Stampin'Up! product.
