Mirror Chalkboard on the Wall
I know I keep talking about my great finds at that sale a couple of weeks ago, but I am still wading through the wonderful stash I accumulated from that one sale. I found this incredible frame there, but a huge section of the top had become detached. Being the great junker the seller was, she had the good sense to tape the broken piece to the mirror.
Large mirrors are not selling for us right now, but chalkboards are so my first thought was what a great chalkboard this would be. My husband kept after me about what we were going to do with the mirror and after contemplation I decided to paint the back side of the mirror with the chalkboard paint. That way, if anyone did want to convert this back to a mirror, they would have the option to do so. That also meant I wouldn't have to throw the mirror away. An old mirror with no frame is not any good to anyone.
Doesn't this remind you of the tale of Snow White? It does me. You can see from the before photo where my husband glued and patched. The whole right side of the carving had broken off. I think this is a beautiful vintage frame. You certainly don't find them like this anymore. The frame itself is a beautiful work of art.
Thanks for visiting.
