Old Art Turned to Chalkboard

The mother-daughter team at Namely Original is at it again!  They turned this thrift store art into a fun chalkboard.

Emily’s mom saw this art at a a thrift store and thought the size and chunky frame had potential.  The painting was so dark, that it made her think of a chalkboard.  So, they sanded down the bumpy paint texture and covered it with chalkboard paint.  The frame was given a coat of distressed white paint.  Emily looked up chalkboard fonts online and used chalk markers to create the adorable cafe-style sign as a gift for her aunt.  (Lucky!)  I wish I could write on a chalkboard like that!
