I had a church function last Saturday so I knew I would not be able to hit any yardsales. I happened to be near a thrift store earlier in the week and thought I better stop by and see if there might be something calling my name. I saw this adorable plaque that was once quite expensive but I really had no use for a "Madison". I do have a Maddie but for $1.48 I knew that this had to go home with me. After visiting several blogs I knew chalkboard paint would have to be used somewhere on this. I couldn't decide whether I should use it in my kitchen or bath. You already know that my guest bath is done in black and white so the decision was made. This project was so simple. I just covered the "Madison" part with chalkboard paint and used white spray paint on the rest. I had purchased some of the chalkboard pens at Michael's that someone told about and they are WONDERFUL! This is my finished project. I made the picture from the side because the flash made a glare from the front.
This glare isn't as bad as a closeup but you can still see it. I want to get something cute to hang from the knobs on the plaque. For $1.48.....you can't be it!!!
