Upcycled Style - French Country Chalkboard

Hello friends.

I'm sharing a little upcycling project with you today.

I saw this piece of artwork in a junk shop about three months ago.
I wasn't a fan of the painting, but I really liked the look of the frame.
You could say it was love at first sight. ♥

I knew someday it would become a fabulous...


All I did was tape the inside edges of the frame with Frog tape and roll out two light coats of Valspar brand chalkboard paint using a cheap little sponge roller kit I found at Lowes.

I played around this morning and created a tasty southern menu board.
Couldn't really find a spot in the kitchen to hang it, so I just put it on the front door long enough to snap this pic. Would make a pretty awesome welcome sign if you ask me. :)

Much love,
