Susan's Mini Chalkboards

Susan picked up these frames at a yard sale last year. She held on to them, waiting for inspiration to strike.

The inspiration finally came in two forms - chalk paint and chalkboard paint!




Aren't they perfect little menu boards for a dining room buffet?
Sweet!



The buffet is Susan's creation as well.
You can check in out at out next tag sale in July!

Sharon, the chalkboard frames are too cool. I'm in luck because I purchased a frame similar to these and have been waiting for inspiration. Well, not really, its sitting in my junk room with all the other junk waiting to be up-cycled. Now I know what to do with it! Thanks also for stopping by and leaving me a kind comment, Kathy
