Chalkboards and a Pretty Planter

I love old picture frames...

...and I found these oldies but goodies last week.  Right away I knew they would be perfect for mini chalkboards!
I totally forgot to take before photos - sorry!
I painted them with Annie Sloan chalk paint in Louis Blue and then I washed over them with a pretty antiquing gel.

I love how they turned out!
I thought they'd be so pretty on a desktop.  You know, instead of  unruly pieces of  sticky notes everywhere.   That's what I use mine for and it really dresses up the desk quite a bit.
I write little notes and reminders on it.

They'd be cute as wedding table decor too!

or a sweet little Valentine note!

I also got this cool old Syroco planter/wall pocket.
Is it just me or does anyone else love that old Syroco decor?
I'm not always crazy about the original color of it though, so I painted this one.
It got the same treatment as the chalkboard picture frames.

as well as a wee bit of distressing.
Pretty cool huh?

These are all available for sale right now in my Etsy!!

Have a great day everyone!!
