Happy Wednesday, Friends! First, I want to thank you for all of the kind words and prayers on behalf of Audrey and her husband. Here's her latest update:
Thank you to all of you that prayed for him. He is home now and feeling better, but has to wear a portable defibrillator for awhile in case of a heart attack. May God bless every one. Hugs, Audrey Z.
Now for today's 15 Minute Fix--this time the simple upcycle of two recent thrift store finds...
Remember these two thrift store frames I found several weeks ago? Someone had already taken the time to hand paint them with pretty floral accents. They just needed a little love.
I knew they would make great little chalkboards. My favorite way transform a frame into a chalkboard is with peel and stick chalkboard paper. The moss green frame already had a wood back, so I just used the opening in the frame as a pattern and cut the chalkboard paper to fit.
...one to go! Since this one didn't have a back, I cut a thick piece of cardboard to create one by using the frame as a pattern. Next, I pressed the chalkboard paper onto the cardboard making sure it was smooth.
Last, I inserted the cardboard into the back of the frame. Once I trimmed it a little, it fit snugly inside the opening. You may remember a previous 15 Minute Fix that featured a farmhouse vignette created with a vintage tool tray. This time I used the handy tool tray with my newly upcycled chalkboard to create an Easter vignette.
You may also remember the adorable pair of collectible chicks I scored this summer. I love them with my other vintage treasures. Notice the vintage postcard from the antique mall in the tray? Now that I recall the tool tray was a find from the same antique mall.
Here's a wider peek...
