I found these out dated prints at the thrift with very cool frames.
I have recently purchased a new brand of chalk paint from Southern Honey Workshop and wanted to try it out. June bug green and Edna blue where the choices for this project.
June bug green
Both of these frames where faux gilded one gold and one a light silver. I sanded in areas to the original colors and then added gilding wax on the texture around the black board. However before painting the frames, I sprayed 4 coats of Krylon chalk board paint on the glass. I waited an hour between coats or when the coats appear dry, and after the last coat waited 24 hours before curing with chalk stick (read instructions on the can) and painting the frames. Time wise a three day project from start to finish. Most of the time drying time.
Note to self: Sanding before painting wtih Southern Honey for the best results.
