I'm am so not over the chalkboard trend. I have so many chalkboards in my house and don't plan on stopping! I love it so! 2 walls, 2 doors and 2 frames aren't quite enough. So I did another one! :)
This chevron chalkboard frame is the perfect place to jot a little Thanksgiving reminder!
Would you believe that this is how the frame started out? Pink and black isn't my favorite color scheme to decorate with, but I loved how the white framed the inset back. So I decided to see if I could make something else out of it.
I gave it a few coats of spray paint. Unfortunately, I didn't sand first so the polka dots and flowers still showed through.
I'm the laziest crafter ever so rather then sand the frame properly and repaint it, I decided to find something to cover it up. I remembered the cute chevron ribbon I scored at Hobby Lobby a few weeks ago and thought maybe it could work.
I cut the edges of the ribbon on an angle so the ribbon looked mitered and glued it on with tacky glue (amazon affiliate link).
Then I cut down some chalkboard vinyl and applied it to the inside of the frame. It worked perfectly to cover the designs that showed through the rotten paint job I gave it. I also distressed the edges of the frame a bit.
A cute little chevron chalkboard to go next to an owl friend and bowl of pumpkins!!
