Three Makeovers-Before and After

I was able to get three project completed from Goodwill finds. The first one is a wood tray purchased a month or so ago. I scraped off all of the old paint because it was thick and had ridges in it. I repainted it white and then...
painted the center with chalkboard paint. I then added vinyl dots and put "Messages" in vinyl lettering also.

I didn't get this picture rotated before I posted, but you get the idea.

Here are some ugly plastic gold frames that were begging for a makeover.

Painted black and mounting these cute chicken prints from an old calendar was just what these frames were meant to look like.

And lastly, here is a "beauty" from GW.

Srpay painted black (sprayed with primer first) and some vinyl lettering and I have a whole new look for this platter.
For more unique makeovers and metamorphsis' head on over to Between Naps On The Porch and see what others have created. Link up here.

The rooster prints turn out great! I cannot believe those pictures were from a calendar. Very impressive. I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed the canning post. I think your daughter is lucky to have a mom who can teach her this art. I would love to hear about how she makes her white chicken chili. It sounds so yummy. Take care.

3 great make overs. Your lettering is fab. I wouldn't have thought to paint the glass dish.
