Garage Sale Makeovers




Who doesn’t need a red framed chalkboard? I can’t believe how great this turned out. This was sitting broken in a box labeled free at a garage sale. I didn’t know what I was going to do with it, but I knew I would love it!

Here it is before. I hated the fat chef pictures.

Remember this $5 frame I got a few weeks ago. Well I finally painted it and put a new picture in it.

What do you think? I had a beach photo enlarged at Wal-Mart. IMG_4432

The two smaller pictures are from home goods. Ignore the ugly couch, as soon as I hit the lotto it’s gone.


I haven’t started my curtains yet but I hope to do them today.
