Chalk-Painted Picture Mat

I re-painted my picture awhile back…

There was something about it I wasn’t sure I liked but, I couldn’t put my finger on it.

The more I looked at it the more I decided it was the picture mat. It looked like blue painters tape. Not the look I was going for. So I decided to re-paint the mat (yes, again… story of my life!!!). I wanted to bring in more yellow to match my new coffee table.

So I used some of the left over chalk paint. Here’s the recipe again, in case you missed it….

Seriously love this stuff!

I also toned down the inner frame from light silver to a dark charcoal with silver highlights.

I love it…

for now. ;)

Have a happy week!

  1. Steph,

    Looks much better! You focus on the pot of flowers more now and the flowers stand out better. How you been?
