Howdy there everyone!
Thanks for popping in today to see what I am up to.
Always something, and sometimes even no good if you know me:)
Today, I am sharing how to make an old window into a chalkboard work of art.
Well, in my opinion it is a work of art.
I will have you know I did clean the crud real good before I brought this old chippy window indoors.
I scored it at a thrift store for $10.00. Probably paid too much,
but hey where can you get original one of a kind art work for $10.00?
I painted each window pane with La Craie Bayou Blue.
Remember when I was updating my Home decor and painted my rooster?
I then blow dried it to make this project move along a little faster.
Probably not recommended normally, but for a small project like this…
I seasoned the panes with chalk.
Not sure at this point what I was going to do, so just in case.
Wipe off chalk with dry lint free cloth.
I used an old white t-shirt of the boys.
this is for you sissie, and for the rest of the world that makes fun of my recipe stencil.
Still going strong 350 projects later:)
Best $2.99 I ever spent at Hobby lobby.
I thought I would try out La Craie’s new medium crackle on the window panes.
Not sure if I did it right, it did crackle just a tad.
The stenciling did not stop there…
a few roo’s too:)
I lightly sanded my stenciling job to fade it out a bit.
so what do you think?
Not too bad for $10.00 and a little time.
Hey not sure if you follow me along on Facebook, but I sure would love to see you over there!
Speaking of Chalkboard projects!
I have put together
you could have some fun doing yourself.
