Isn’t she lovely?
This is her before:
The frame said buy me. I love all the details.
I spray painted it with a flat white and dry brushed with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Country Grey.
I removed the picture and painted it with 3 coats of chalkboard paint.
It turned out great, she really put a smile on my face 🙂
I couldn’t resist this photo of my dogwood tree. It is so beautiful!
I hope you are having a great week!
The next time you see one of those old pictures, grab it.
Make a chalkboard out of it!

Lovely – I’m a hoarder, oh I mean collector, of frames. What was the print on? Seems like I find a lot of the prints which is almost like hardboard but it seems to be more paper. I usually take those out and replace with painted hardboard. One of these days I’m going to try the paper type and see what happens.
The paper type do just fine. I replace them sometimes, if they are bowed. Try one 🙂
Do you need some sort of primer? I have a large canvas-like picture (frameless) that I want to turn into a chalkboard, and not sure if I need to prime it first. It has sort-of a slick surface….thanks for any advice!!
I didn’t use a primer. I just painted it with the chalkboard paint.
Your chalkboard looks great! That is such a pretty frame with your refreshing paint job!
Very cute and much better….Love chalk paint and white. Cute.
This makes me want to go to goodwill right now and see what I can find. Love the makeover.
What a way cute transformation. Love it!!
I’m such a sucker for a good chalkboard project, and this is so pretty!!
Thanks for sharing at Simply Klassic!
I never would have thought of painting over a canvas. What a great idea! It all looks great!
Love this!! There are so many fun things to do with chalk paint.
It looks great. I pass by those masterpieces all the time at the thrift store.
Fabulous my friend, just love it!!
We had similar posts, didn’t we? lol! I LOVE your idea too and there are so many more of THOSE easily available and for a great price! Super job!
Awesome frame. You REALLY kicked it up several notches! Inspiring work.
My mouth is wide open. I didn’t know you could use chalk paint over a painting. Wow! I have had a quart of chalk paint for almost a year and haven’t even cracked it open yet. I have seen all of these inspirations in blogland, and it is time to get my rear in gear. The first thing to get painted will be the cabinet doors in my new craft room.
Very nice! I love the chalkboard and the backdrop of Mother Nature 🙂
Great idea! Now do me a favor and send it my way when you get sick of it. 😉
Love it! That frame was just begging to get a facelift! 😉
I did the same with one in my diningroom only it’s oval and I found out that the pictures takes the chalkboard paint really well, tried it on a mirror and wasn’t as good as the picture board! I really like how yours turned out!
Very pretty! I just have to start taking the pic out of the frame before I start to paint mine 🙂
Look at you Fresh Deb, getting all crafty and cute. I love this and your photos out by the tree are so pretty.
Your chalkboard turned out great! That’s a beautiful frame.
Love it! 🙂
I love it Debbie!!
Very pretty, Debbie!
Your dogwood is gorgeous! We had a dogwood when we lived in Indiana, but it was tiny in comparison to yours!
That definitely put a smile on my face Debbie! 🙂 I just love it and your dogwood tree! 🙂
This so does not help me with my chalkboard obsession right now! She is gorgeous! Now I am going to be singing Isn’t She Lovely for the rest of the day…
That turned out great Debbie! I love ASCP Country Grey!!
