before & after chalkboard

My friend's niece requested a chalkboard for her 6th birthday so she asked me to make her one.
She wanted it to be especially girly.

before & after
I used the Dial soap technique once again for a shabby look.  Then I used my stamps with acrylic paint for her name. 
This is such a fun gift idea.  You can find these old prints anywhere and you don't even have to remove them from the frame.  I just taped off the edges and sprayed chalkboard paint right over the glass.  These are my favorite kinds of projects.  
I hope Madi likes it.

LOVE this! The pin is so girly and sweet! The name is my favorite part though, the perfect personal touch! I LOVE the little flowers and the font of her name! Too, too cute! Great job!

Cute! I didn't know that you can paint right onto the glass! I'm on the hunt now for one ugly picture! :)
