Chalkboard and a Great Frame Find

Of course this would look beautiful painted white 
and turned into a chalkboard! 

You can paint directly over art like this, but this was sunken in the middle so I replaced it with Eucaboard.  You'll find that sold near the plywood in 4 x 8 sheets in places like Lowes and Home Depot.

  1. Well, the Hey, Sexy lady sign got me over here, but i am glad - love that frame and never thought of just painting over those cardboard pictures! I usually use Masonite - how is that different from Eucaboard?

  2. I think the two products are very similar! I'll have to check next time I buy a sheet and see. Its hard to find larger old paintings that aren't warped, but I have painted and wallpapered right overmany of them, no problem. It sure is easier than sawing large sheets into smaller pieces!

  3. Now just look at your cute THRIFTY chalkboard:) Merry Christmas to YOU!!!
