I spent the holiday weekend doing some painting, including some chalkboards. One of the chalkboards originally started out as a gorgeous mirror. Beveled. Huge (it's about 40" wide). To die for. I bought it from a vendor who was closing out her business, and I got a great deal on it.
So I took it down to the shop the other day, and had it leaning against a display case while I got things ready to hang it.
You guessed it. A customer knocked it over.
Into little pieces.
I almost cried.
The poor guy offered to pay for it, but it was obviously an accident. He knocked it over as he was moving out a table that he had just bought from me.
So I brought it home and made a chalkboard out of it.
While I was at it, I made one for a big turquoise frame I've had around.
And painted some silverplate trays.
It involves this.
Can you guess what it is?
Right as I was about to get started on it though, I got a phone call from the store that a dresser sold, and I now have an empty space.
So I stopped that project and moved on to this one. I picked it up at Goodwill.
I'll show you the "after" in my next post.
At least I plan to.
But, you know ... stuff happens.
Like broken mirrors.
So you change direction and move on.
(But since I don't want to live with a ladder in my family room forever, I'd better get these projects done soon!)
I hope you had a wonderful 4th of July weekend, and that whatever happens in your life this week is all good stuff!
