During the 15 minute drive to school I was hoping the garbage truck wasn't going to beat me to it. By the time I returned to town I could still see the picture frame sticking out of the garbage, no garbage truck had come and no one had bothered to stop, lucky me!
But when I went to pick the frame out of the garbage I got a double surprise, I found a beautiful Venetian mirror with gorgeous carved roses. Both finds had their imperfections. The frame had old mildew fabric edging I removed and the mirror had a wood rose missing which in time I plan to refurbish. Love discovering old discarded antiques especially freebies and turning them into something special and useful.
I painted the hardboard with three coats of the Disney Great Slate Chalkboard Paint and then framed it in the gorgeous Gold Antique Wood Frame I found in the trash and refurbished.
Now all I have to do is wait 7 days before I write on my Country Kitchen Chalkboard. I am thinking of painting something on it but not sure what. I do have a week to figure it out : )
Love my One of Kind Country Kitchen Chalkboard and I can't wait to write on it.

"A tintable paint that turns any surface into a chalkboard" give it a try
Until next time,
