March Madness- {from print to chalkboard}



Welcome to day 2 of my March Madness 12 days, twelve projects! 
 If you visited me yesterday, then I'm sure you just can't wait to see what I did with this framed print! I just opened up a new shop space a lot closer and much more convenient to my home in a little farmtown community called Junction City. In my space I wanted something that was a focal point for the wall. Little did I realize at the time that I already had plenty of focal points.
Let's just hope that some of them sell. 😉


Unfortunately my idea isn't anything new. It is one I saw a couple of years ago from my good friend Holly at Down to Earth Style when she painted a print into a chalkboard that had a frame she already liked. 
I got this print because of it's size, not because of it's frame, so
the difference between hers and mine is that I decided to paint the frame as well. 
 I wanted a fresh look, so I went with my favorite Rust-Oleum Heirloom White in satin. I sprayed it twice and loved it so much that I decided not to distress it this time. 
I know, shocker!

I wrote the same message as Holly did. It is very much my style! This isn't what the message says in the shop though. I changed out the phrase to "Probably So", which describes my husband.
I think that's why we are such a great fit for each other.

I plan to change out the message every time I go into the shop.
This image displays the proportionate size of the chalkboard. 
I love how it turned out! 
I'm thinking to give my Rain Gutter Antique a fresh coat of paint eventually...but not before I clear out the garage!

Can you guess which of the images below is on my hit list for tomorrow?
 
You'll just have to come back tomorrow to find out!
