Ugly picture to a new chalkboard

You probably remember this monstrosity I found at an estate sale last weekend.

Great frame – ugly print.  Not to worry spray paint and chalkboard paint to the rescue again

Here is the frame after painting – It’s actually quite a bit darker than this.  Not sure why this picture looks so light.

Next step painting over the print with chalkboard paint.

Voila! A new chalkboard by the front door.

Quarantine Day 2 and a Thrifty Christmas Wreath

On day 2 of our quarantine I was able to get quite a few projects done.  WeeMan helped me make blueberry muffins.  He loves to help cook (which is why he’s getting his own kitchen for Christmas – daddy and I just have to make it out of the microwave cart I bought at a garage sale)

Then during nap time I vegetated with HGTV and put together a wreath for the front door.  The best part is it was only $3.  I had almost everything on hand.

The only thing purchased for the project was a $3 L ornament I found on black Friday.  I simply wrapped a square grape vine wreath I had already with artificial pine swag – also on hand- and then added my L and a bow.  Not bad for $3!
