chalk board and robins

This huge frame (it's over 3.5 feet by 2.5 feet!), hung over my Grandma's couch and had a not-so-pretty print of a man on a horse. So, I just spray painted the print itself with chalk board paint. It had a texture already so I thought it would work well. This hangs over the blue chest of drawers that I redid in my kitchen. I'm going to think of an eating theme Bible verse to put on it...

I've been playing around with some art lately and the two robin-themed ones are what I've done so far. For the egg one, I used the "egg" definiton out of an old dictionary. On the robin piece, I aged some pages out of an old french book. You could do all different kinds of themes for different vignettes.

Hi, Allie, thank you for stopping by to see me! Looks like you are new to blogging, but I love what I see already. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have, so glad you stopped by & I hope you'll come back often. We have a lot in common with painting furniture.

And yes, you can absolutely paint any sort of furniture. If the veneer is not bubbled or peeling, just paint right over it. You may want to prime first. Sometimes I prime & sometimes I don't, but you shouldn't have any problem painting that. In fact, these days you can paint anything with the right primer.
