Chalk it up…

We got this frame a year or so ago for a steal.  I wanted it for a painting, but when I took it to the frame shop it was too warped to use. (Maybe it wasn’t such a steal after all.)  But, I loved its little warped ways and couldn’t get rid of it.

I was cleaning out the office this weekend and came across it.  Being the procrastinator, ahem, multitasker that I am, I decided to get a little crafty.  First, I picked a spot and then headed to the hardware store for supplies.  Well, technically, I didn’t go to the hardware store but whatever.

the perfect spot

Next, I measured the frame and taped off the area to be painted.  Hold up, what?  Painted?  Settle down.  You’ll see in a minute…

the blue sort of matches my nails...

Now the paint.  First coat, wait three hours.  Second coat, wait three days.

see... told you they match

Three days is a long time.   And now the finished product…

So what do you think?  You likey?  On second thought, don’t tell me unless you do.  I am super sensitive when it comes to warpy framed chalk boards.
