Welcome to the firstTrash to Treasure Tuesday!
Meet my first trashy friend. I thought about giving her a name, but I was sure it would be, like, someone’s grandma’s name. I found this today at the GW for $3.99. It’s actually one piece, more like a plaque than a frame with “art.”
I bought my first can of chalkboard paint at Home Depot this evening, and it was LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT.
Apparently, you have to let chalkboard paint “cure” for 3 days. So I couldn’t write a catchy phrase on it, but you get the idea. I trimmed the “frame” edge with Colonial Red from American Accents. My kids think I should use this for their daily “To Do” lists. Do you think it might help with the actual “DO” part?
Now for the GIVEAWAY part. Did you scroll down to read this part first? Come on, it’s okay to admit it.
