A Message For My Children~A Chalk Talk

Pretty Ugly, Huh?
No?
REALLY UGLY!

Ahh...
But a bit of white paint...


Distressed a bit...

And the ugly before

becomes a beautiful
After...

The message says it all~
You ARE my heart~

OMGosh! You have some talent! Never knew! LOL
Love this make over and the message on the board.
So is this all you got done? No sticky buns or cherry tarts?
Seriously though- any ideas on something I can eat that won't burn and sting? Is this what they used to call trench mouth? Making potato soup right now.
Just got some fresh green beans and have them on with potatoes and bacon. Hope I can eat them. ARG
Have a great day!

What a sweet mama you are :-) Your chalkboard turned out great. Did you actually paint over the picture, or did you use a board in it's place?
Have a wonderful weekend Diana!
Blessings,
Marcia

OH MY GOSH, you ruined a masterpiece to make that! It must be a VanGogh, or a Picasso, and now you've ruined it...
By the way, misspelling on purpose, or maybe not.
Love ya sis, and love the chalkboard.

Janet said...

Blessings,
