Rachel makes a beautiful home.
She has so many fun
This week she made a chalkboard from an old frame.
She painted the frame light gray
dry brushed white over the top.
Then she cut a piece of 1/4" underlayment board
and screwed it onto the back of the frame.
Here is the recipe I used for the black chalkboard paint:
1/4 cup plaster of paris
4 tablespoons water
1/2 cup (or a little more) black paint
The mixture is thin and will require a few coats.
You can make it thicker by adding more paint.
After transferring the lettering to the board
I took a liner brush of white paint and went over the top
to make it permanent.
You can change the verse
by using a damp black t shirt rag.
Here is other handmade art that she has in her home.
She made this barnwood backdrop
these rustic summer stars:
Her kitchen looks so festive for summer!
We painted her gray and white table here.
She made her USA banner and Star Canvas.
Do you remember when we remade this old entertainment center
into a pantry?
We made these Coffee Filter Wreaths too!
So many fun projects!
Hope you got some good inspiration
for your home.
Thanks for stopping by!
