    • water container
    • palette or plastic plate
    • paper towels
    • old picture frame with wood backing
    • two foam paintbrushes
    • wood backing for frame (if needed)

    1. Remove artwork and wood backing from picture frame. (If it does not have wood backing, you can have one cut to size at hardware store.)
    2. Paint picture frame Sea Glass. (If desired, do light coat to let natural wood show through for distressed look.)
    3. While paint on frame is drying, flip over artwork or wood backing in frame and paint with Black Slate Chalkboard Paint. Follow label instructions.
    4. Once dry, put wood board back in frame with chalkboard side facing out.
    5. If desired, embellish frame with fabric garland or other embellishment.
