I applied three coats of Valspar chalkboard paint (it only came in pint size and it was pretty pricey for the small amount I needed...so you will be seeing more chalkboard projects here soon!), sprayed the frame silver and applied some black enamel for an antiqued look. I LOVE how it turned out. What do you think?
Ornate Frame Turned Chalkboard
Before & After
Finished product-next to my ice bucket from HomeGoods that I use for all of my utensils. It's hard to see but I also have all of my wisks in a vase I scored from Target in the clearance section-it's a silvered 'faux bois' (fancy for wood grain) textured vase.
Happy Treasure Hunting!
