Not just a chalkboard

When we first moved into our house there was this space in our kitchen that was just a little off.  Let me show you what I mean:

It was this blank space next to the fridge.  I think it needed top cabinets.  But we had just put a sizeable amount down on the house and I wasn’t sure I could match the cabinets.  I also have this thing about redoing perfectly good cabinets{like painting them} so I decided to do something else.

I was thrifting and I found this awesome painting.

Isn’t it breath taking??  Ok seriously, I didn’t love the painting, it just wasn’t my style.  But I did LOVE the frame.  So I just painted over the painting using chalk board paint.

It looks a lot better having something in that spot.  I know everyone has a chalk board now a days.  I know it’s not anything original.  But my point in this post is look at the frames when you are thrifting.  Isn’t this one gorgeous??

Plus it is so fun having the chalkboard.  I sometimes wake up to fun messages like this one:

cute chalk board painting

That was done by my awesome hubby!!  Isn’t he talented??

So next time you are thrifting see if you can find an awesome frame.  There are tons of great things to do with them.

Thanks for reading!!
