|World Market's Framed Chalkboard--lovely but at $39.99, not a lovely price!|
Believe it or not, I actually had this frame at home! You guessed it--a thrift find and another one of those times I didn't actually have a specific purpose in mind when I purchased it. I just knew I would regret walking away from it. Mine was $7.50 and even better than the WM one, since it is vintage. Did I mention, I bought it painted just like this?! It was only missing the glass but I had another idea...
|My vintage frame $7.50 from my local thrift store!|
Since the glass was missing, I decided to use chalkboard fabric which is durable and works just as well if not better than chalkboard paint. I used less than a 1/2 yard which was around $2.50. I stretched it tight across the cardboard backing, then taped it before stapling it to the inner frame edge.
Viola'--the finished project! Not bad for $10, huh?! So many reasons to love thrifting!
