I had a cork board on the wall in my laundry room wall with photos of family, friends, coupons, calendars etc attached to them. You can see it to the left in the above pic.

Well in order to depersonalize our home for sale, I removed it and found a piece of artwork I wasn't using and decided to transform it.
Here it is, a picture of a topiary with a couple of birdies in a bamboo frame....cute....and don't worry I did not paint over it!!
Instead the back of the picture was just a piece of wood and I painted it with ....... CHALK PAINT.......!
All I did was remove the mounting hardware, added a string and chalk, and a hook and here it is! 

For a house showing I can erase our family calendar and it will still look attractive AND if I ever decide to use the art side of the frame again I still can.... yep....I'm proud :)

  1. Oh this is de lovely and so up my alley. Always wanted a chalk board and yours is gorgeous. Very nifty to have art on one side and chalk on other side.
