Chalk paint!

Remember this lil guy?

Well I broke the mirror. Yep, 7 years bad luck now.
So what to do with this cute lil frame?

It's a mini chalk board!!

Onto the next chalk board project

Here's the before

And here's the after
I like the black chalk board a lot better than the green, now I just need to get some chalk.

Sorry about the mirror. Good thing the frame is so cute! I love that pool rack. Not something you see everywhere and I love that!

Hi, I love your cute, picture frame chalkboard. I also love the way you displayed your billiard rack. I have a beautiful mahogany pool table that we need to use more often! Time for a "pool" party!

Hi Tracy...

Ohhh...what GRAND chalk painting projects! Your little frenchy frame and chalkboard turned out beautifully...who needs a mirror anyway...right? Hehe! And...I love, love, LOVE that old billard ball rack...it's fabulous!!! I definitely agree with you...the black chalkboard is soooo much prettier than the green! What a fabulous project! I don't know if I've ever seen a billiard ball rack like that before...it's awesome!

Thank you so much for sharing these fabulous projects with us for Sunday Favorites this week...a real treat, my friend!

Have a marvelous Monday, Tracy!

Oh wow! I adore this project. What a wonderful metamorphosis.

Please stop by and see my project. It only took 23 years to complete.

Hey nice job, I like that pool ball project, although I think it would really pop all those wonderful colors if the wood was painted white. Just a thought.

Townhouse Trials said...

Kashyakoosh, I was thinking that as well but Mikey likes the wood, but I'm sure I can change his mind with time!
