I love it when something great comes from a cool thrift store find. We recently added these pedestal framed chalk boards to Avery’s room.
It all started with this fancy frame I found at the thrift store. This frame wasn’t looking too hot when I bought it. I really wish I had taken a “before” picture of it. It was white and it looked dirty…that’s probably the best way to describe it. Even after a good soak in my kitchen sink and a run through the dishwasher, it still looked dirty. With a nice coat of hot pink spray paint, it was quickly transformed!
I had these wood dowels and bases from a different decoration, but I wasn’t ready to part with them. I love that I was able to re-use them again with these oval frames. To make the chalkboards, I sprayed thin metal with chalkboard spray paint and I cut them to fit the frames with tin snips. All three of the frames were found at the thrift store and sprayed with bright colors. Once the frames were ready, I just hung them on the dowel and bases. I used some duct tape to secure the frame to the dowel.
I love how they look together at varied heights…different, yet the same.
They sit on a little shelf behind the top bunk of her bed.
That’s my fun thrifty find for the week, How about you? Any fun finds lately?
