I really did like this picture, but wasn't using it since I changed the decor in my living room. I decided with a little paint & trim, I could make this a cute chalkboard for my daughter's room.
Basically, I quickly spray painted the metal at the top & bottom a flat silver (it's all I had). Then, I painted on two coats of chalkboard paint, and added some pink & white polka dotted ribbon I had on hand.
I think it turned out pretty cute:
Elie can even tuck special cards in between the ribbon.
The only bad thing about Elie having a chalkboard in her room is that she is too busy playing with it at night to go to bed! Maybe bedtime will get easier once the newness wears off!
