I didn't care for the old cardboard print in the frame either, so I used the same brown paint and painted right over it! Although it is not as durable as one of my chalkboards, I can still write with chalk on it! So the next time you pass by an ugly framed cardboard print at the thrift store, think about painting over it in a fun color and using it as a "holiday" chalkboard! Last Valentine's Day I drew a big white heart with an arrow going through it and added a little Valentine's message. I also hung some red glittered hearts where the leaves are now. The "planter" above the frame is actually faux iron. I picked it up at a yard sale a while ago.
I have lots more fun ideas to come! I'm so excited about a feature project that I just completed for next week. (more on that soon) Thanks for visiting each day! I love you all!
