The other day I was at the local Thrift Store and I stumbled upon this beauty.
I already have way too many mirrors in my house...but I couldn't pass up this price.
I felt that it needed a good home
. . . . . . .
I've been wanting a chalkboard.
So on the way home I stopped by Hobby Lobby and picked up a can of chalkboard spray paint
I painted the wood frame white and then sprayed the mirror with black chalkboard paint.
And now I have a fun new chalkboard
After everything was finished, I was so excited to finally write something.
I thought I would start out with this fun quote...
Well...if you ZOOM in, you'll see how true this quote actually is.
Minutes after I finished writing, Jack (my 1 year old son) came up
and starting rubbing his little fingers all over the part of the board he could reach...
My first thought was: "Oh. No"
and then I had to smile because I looked up and read what I had just wrote.
(how very appropriate. haha)
I also spotted this wooden initial at Hobby Lobby for only $1.99
I already had the paint and ribbon, so this was an easy and inexpensive project
