Funky frame take 2

Remember how I told you I was on the look-out for another funky frame?

FOUND IT!!!

Uh, Huh... pretty funky.

You know how I love spray paint. This time it's gotta be RED.

A little chalkboard paint in the middle and...

WALAA!

Yes, everybody in the craft-blogging world have been making chalkboards for months now, I know, I know. I'm a little slow on this one but now that I've made one of my own I can understand the obsession.

So easy, so funky.

It's going in my craft room... and when I say craft room I mean the little corner in our loft with a table and a sewing machine on it. ;) (I secretly dream about a craft room with like 7 big funky frames in 7 different colors adorning the walls... yeah .)

p.s. My husband hates it.

Beth said...

Husbands are free to hate as long as they let us continue to decorate :). I for one think it's adorable!

Jill said...

Husbands NEVER get it!
SOOOO cute! I always love a good chalkboard!!

Char said...

If your husband makes you get rid of it, feel free to send it to me.

Michelle said...

I want a funky frame! It's only natural that your hubby hates it. That's what makes it yours. ;)

Controlling My Chaos said...

Well, clearly your husband has no taste. i love it!

Me and My Family said...

I love it! Red is my favorite too! As long as your husband lets you create its fine. Just because he doesn't like it doesn't mean you can't either. Love it up!

Heather said...

I love it! Do you have a favorite brand of spray paint? Every time I do a project with spray paint I am disappointed because the paint does not hold up. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Jessica said...

I am becoming increasing convinced that I need a chalkboard in my kitchen to post my weekly menu on. What did you use for the chalkboard space? (Does that make sense? Did the frame come with something in it that you painted or did you use MDF?)

Carmen said...

Oh I love it! How could your husband hate it???!!! I just made my FIRST chalkboard a couple weeks ago. So you're not the only one who was a little late jumping on the bandwagon. haha

Melissa said...

LOVE IT!!! you might have some competition in the search of funky frames now LOL!!

Connie Babe said...

okay...so...how do you paint it? do you sandpaper it first? do you just spray it? can you post the answer because i won't see it in your comments? thanks!!! (i love it!!!)

Wendy said...

Looks great!!

Erin said...

My husband would hate it too but I LOVE IT! I've been looking at everyone's chalkboard ideas for a while now too but haven't done anything so you're way ahead of me!

Arlene said...

Sarah said...

I love it!

Beth- the mama bee said...

rats, I made the chalkboard part first, now trying to find a frame to fit is going to be tough. so, it sits bare.... but still used.

Chris said...

I. LOVE. IT. Where do you find such great frames?? I think someone keeps beating me to the punch at our consignment shops!

the undomesticated wife said...

Perfect!

Heidi said...

Kristin said...

So cute! Thanks for adding the husband comment, it is nice to know I'm not the only one whose husband has differing opinions on my creations. That made me laugh.

Leanne said...

I love it! Especially that it's red. Sometimes husband's just don't "get it".

Mango Mom said...

Where did you find such an awesome find, love it.

Michelle said...

Have a wonderful day!

Skye O. said...

love red! my husband would agree with your's.

Lorie said...

OH NO! Your hubby hates it? I love it! Of course, I am a sucker for anything red!!

Twiddle Thumbs said...

I need a frame like that! I've been looking but I haven't been able to find one. I saw an idea on a photography website where they had a funky frame like that and painted it some funky color. They didn't put anything inside the frame, but then they had the kids hold the frame around their head for the picture. It was super cute and I want a picture like that of my 3 boys but I haven't been able to find a frame yet.... I guess I'll have to keep looking.

We love your blog and we've linked to you a couple of times. Check out our blog and if you like our stuff, we'd love to have you ad our button to your side bar.
