I found this wooden box in a boot sale around a year ago.... I kept it in the storage room until this last week... when I finally had an idea for it... I transformed it into a rustic serving tray... I used AS Old Ochre and Aubusson Blue.... for handles I used some chunky sisal rope, I love it!
I love blue and white and I also have a thing for stripes....
Out of 8 kitchen doors that I'm "upcycling", 6 are chalkboards and 2 will be signs. In the meantime, I have finished 3 more chalkboards...
You probably saw this one in the previous post :-) This one was painted with AS Scandinavian Pink... and is 60,5 x 39 cms. This one was also painted with AS, a mixture of Cream, Original and Aubusson Blue....result? = MINT! :-) this one is 55,5 x 40 cms
It's been some time since the last post, I know....I have been very busy and the weather wasn't ideal to paint either... But I'm back and I'm very excited with my latest project :-) I bought 8 kitchen cupboard doors on Ebay....solid oak!.
I immediately knew what I wanted to do with them...
Chalkboards!...oh yes!....the shape and surface was ideal for this. I used a long door (72 x 40cms) to make a week planner, it really looks fabulous, I used Annie Sloan paint; Original and Aubusson Blue. The days were written using acrylic paint.
Then I took another door (56 x 50cms) and made a simpler chalkboard. I also used AS paint, a light Aubusson blue, then a coat of Original.
Any kitchen would look gorgeous with one of these... actually, any room in the house can benefit from a playful chalkboard :-) x
