Way back last year sometime I got this pair of mirrors from a friend.
They looked prettier in this picture than there were in person. Of course, I painted them and then they looked like this.
But they were really heavy. I wouldn’t have wanted to attempt to hang them on my plaster walls. Not that I’m keeping them, but if I don’t want to hang them, I imagine no one else will either. So I decided to remove the mirror and make them chalk boards instead.
I just have Ken cut some fiber board to size. Then I paint it with chalk board paint (not to be confused with chalk paint), and secure it back in the frames. Easy as can be.
Now they look like this.
And they are much lighter.
Now these I would be willing to hang on my wall. I’m not going to, because I don’t have a spot for them, but you could! They will be available at the Carriage House sale, as will the union jack suitcase.
