The next room I'm focusing on decorating is the dinning room. After finally deciding on what look I wanted to go for I had visualized what and how I wanted things to look. I found a cork board and a wreath at a yardsale last weekend and I knew just what I wanted to do with it. It's a pretty nice size frame, the color was light green which I liked but I wanted something white and vintage looking. So I chalk painted white and "distressed" it using a Vaseline technique I found on pinterest and it turned out beautiful. It only cost $10 which was the cost for the frame and wreath, everything else I had.
I used a small brush to paint on the chalkboard paint on the sides first, then I used a regular size brush. I wasn't sure if it was going to work since the surface is not very smooth but it turned out fine.
I applied vaseline to the areas I wanted to distress
and just painted right over it
after it was dried I simply wiped off the areas that had vaseline and it instantly gave it an old distressed look.
Here's the outcome
