Happy Wednesday everyone!
You may have seen the video i created during the revamping of our bedroom? Well in the video you’ll see i left the painted blackboard section on the wall. We decided to keep it and build a frame around it.
Here it is all painted and ready for chalking inspiration!
Mr. G sanded the part of the wall where the wood was going to sit and then applied a thick bead of Nail Glue or Liquid Nails.
He had pre-cut some pieces of pine and painted them up before pressing then onto the nail glue.
Because the boards were heavy Mr. G had to add a couple of nails to prop up the wood while the nail glue was drying.
He added decorative corners for that “Je ne sais quoi” look . Notice there is a tiny nail propping up the decorative corner? Then he glued on all of the other pieces.
Mr. G touched up the blackboard paint to make it all look pristine and new once more!
Hooray it’s done! Now all i have to do is buy some liquid chalk to embellish and write the first inspirational quote.
You can do the same thing in your home – you don’t have to make your own frame like we did (royal we!) – you can always buy a thrift store frame and put it over a painted blackboard patch on the wall!
Did you get the chance to check out my solo retreat video i created the other day?
Love, Violette xo
