My sister-in-law had a birthday coming up and I wanted to make something special and functional instead of attemptingthe to buy something that probably would never get used. And she appreciates the crafty stuff too. So I decided to make her a menu board for her kitchen. I started with this ugly gold frame I bought. The design was pretty but the gold made it look tacky. I started by giving it a light coat of white spray paint. Enough to cover it, but light enough that the gold would show through a little to give it some extra style.
Then I spray painted the glass with a basic black chalkboard paint. Three coats, let it dry and tah dah!
Isn't it fancy?! I'm In love and want my own! ps sorry I dont have any before pictures, I was in a rush to get it done before the partaay.
