Goodwill Mirror to Chalkboard

I am helplessly addicted to thrifting and spay paint. Together they make the best team.

Here’s a recent Goodwill bargain at $5.99. The mirror was not great quality, but I liked the unique shape of this frame so I disguarded the mirror and sent my sweet husband to the Depot to get a piece of wood cut to fit. I sanded and primed both pieces.

Then I rolled on two seperate coats of Rustoleum Chalkboard paint onto the wood, and sprayed the frame with my fav color lately Catalina Mist by Krylon. After they were dry we nailed the wood to the frame and I sanded the edges of the frame a little.

Yay, she looks so great in our entryway now!

And my new chalkboard goes well with this

and this

Why am I so obsessed with all shades of this yummy color?

Maybe cause of this?

Probably 🙂

Thanks for stopping by!

  8. Would you believe that I JUST walked past a mirror in my garage that looks exactly like that….I was putting in the pile to give to GW….that is such a great idea to take out the mirror and put in a piece of wood….I think that I am going to do that! Thanks so much for linking! I'm going to feature this tonight on my FB page! 🙂
