I have been holding onto this huge old oak picture frame I found amongst some old family things.
The frame had dents, cracks and bora holes all over it making it a perfect candidate for a trash to treasure makeover!
Using a blackboard/chalkboard paint I painted an old piece of ply that I had Dan cut to fit the frame.
I painted two coats of the blackboard/chalkboard paint on to the ply board.
I also decided to use the blackboard/chalkboard paint on an empty coffee jar, I painted two coats inside the rectangle I created with painters tape.
Here is the final result of my trash to treasure project… a large blackboard for the office!
And the coffee jar saved from the trash is now up on a shelf holding chalk!
