Here's a picture of my frame and painting before, beautiful isn't it (can you sense the sarcasm?):
Here it is after I painted it green. Again, I used some acrylic craft paint that I've had forever. I initially painted the top groove of the frame a pretty yellow, except it wasn't so pretty when I got it in there. So I covered it up with some green and that's why it looks a little lighter in the pic. It could probably uses another sanding, painting, and a coat of poly, but I was feeling kinda lazy. I think it's OK, don't you?
Here it is finished. It now sits proudly in our dining room by the window so the boys can produce one of a kind pieces of art. By the way, once I had the painting back inside the frame, I seasoned my chalkboard by rubbing chalk all over it then wiping it off. I read that it makes it easier to write on it with...I didn't find that to be true, but did it anyway.
I hope you enjoyed my first installment of Sanding Sunday! I have many more projects to come!
