Found a picture thrifting and turned it into a chalkboard. Super EASY!
I also did a little re-vamping of this corner. I’m selling furniture and keeping furniture and painting furniture AND need to slipcover furniture.
I got this for free, because the thrift store was having a buy one get one free sale. I love the frame and I just painted three coats of chalkboard paint over the top of the picture and it looks fabulous! I always look for great frames…even if the picture is ugly. Go forth and paint!

Love it and where you hung it is perfect!
Love that! I need to make me a chalk board for my house… hey, are you selling any dressers?
Great find! And your corner looks so inviting. Happy Wednesday.

I tried painting over the picture once, even used primer, but the paint chipped off. I love this. I have some chalkboard projects posted right now.

I am always looking in the ugly picture section of the thrift store, but I had not thought of this yet. I paint over them to make new paintings but this is so much easier!
You did a great job…it's gorgeous now!!!
Have a wonderful day!

I love chalkboards and your corner looks so cozy (;
I love this idea and I tried it once before on my own and found that the chalkboard wasn't all that functional because of the ridges on the canvas of the painting. Is there something I can do to make it more 'usable'?

I've switched to chalkboard markers! They're fantastic!

I love the frame! Your chalkboard looks perfect in your living room. Thanks so much for linking up!
I love the detail on that frame and I could see it moving all around your house through the years-just guessing but I think you and I have the same “condition”, we love change, am I right?
You could also paint the frame if you got tired of the look or wanted it to coordinate with another space.
What a great idea…that corner looks so great. Where are the chairs from??
I LOVE THIS IDEA!
