A Message Board
I have been working in my Kitchen.….
Updating cabinets, art work and now an ‘old’ message board for my soon to be farmhouse kitchen.
I found this frame at a thrift store for $4!
NO sanding or priming!
I gave it 2 coats of Annie Sloan’s Old White.
Using my Silhouette I cut out the word MESSAGES with scrap vinyl .
I used the negative from the cut out and stuck it on the frame.
Then I dry brushed some of ASCP in Primer Red.
I used the same technique on the sides with a shape.
then I peeled off the vinyl……
Do you see how the sticky vinyl pulled off some of the white paint??
I LOVED the distressed look.
So I used masking tape to distress the whole frame.
This was a FUN distressing technique with some great results.
It almost has a chipy look to it….
See how well masking tape will distress?
Make sure you don’t use painter’s tape like Frog Tape….true to it’s word it’s made to NOT pull up paint and it doesn’t
The hubby cut a piece of scrap wainscoting and
I painted the back of it with chalkboard paint.
Before writing on your new chalkboard…
You MUST prep it by rubbing chalk on the whole area and erasing it.
This step makes it easy to erase future messages.
The FINAL step I placed the chalkboard in the frame
and stapled in place.
And there you have it…..a $4 frame repurposed into a
‘old’ farmhouse message board.
Thank you so much for stopping by!
