Yesterday evening my Mr. AGPMan helped me attach wire hangers onto the backs of these two chalkboard signs. He's been trying to teach me to use a new staple gun and like everything TOOL RELATED I've been in the
"I really don't want to learn this" mode of thinking! :(
I've used electric guns many times in the past (lots for upholstery work!), but this gun is for smaller jobs and is really powerful and fast. I nearly shot myself in the arm with it! :( So...I've decided this time to really pay attention to what my guy is telling me. I happen to like having eyes...you know?
I worked on my new booth space most of the day yesterday and was happy to get everything I had taken down to the Market tagged and priced. I'm returning today with another load and probably on Wednesday as well. Last week I worked on lots of new things....things I don't generally sell on my website due to their size! Chalkboard signs are something new for me even though I've made a couple for my home.
Isn't the frame neat on this one? I got a great picture on clearance at a craft shoppe and thought it would be darling transformed into a chalkboard. I removed the glass and used the backing for the chalkboard paint. The smaller one is a vintage frame and had an ugly print on the inside. I just painted over the old painting with the same brush-on chalkboard paint (removed it first from the frame) and then whitewashed the wooden frame before gently aging it!
Hope to show you more pics of my new booth soon. I'm loving it so much...I'm tired...but it's a good tired.
Hope you day is wonderful!
Love to you...
