Fun with Film Holders

By Miss Mustard Seed on Apr 30, 2012

Here’s my little project with the antique film holders I bought last week…

As soon as I saw them, I envisioned making them into mini chalkboards.



So, I taped off the frame and spayed the film directly with two coats of chalkboard paint.  Very simple and very cute (in my opinion.)



(And I decided to keep this little alarm clock and I’m selling a different one that I’ve had in my house.)




I’ve been very busy the last few days with milk paint stuff (so crazy exciting) and book writing stuff (crazy exciting, too) and getting things ready for Lucketts.  I finally got out my paint sprayer to paint the 100+ letters I found at a yard sale a couple of weeks ago.  I was considering painting them by hand, but that was a silly thought.  I was able to get them all sprayed in about 15 minutes.  Work smarter not harder, right?

…and goodness knows I’m working hard!

(By the way, I am going to work with retailers to carry Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint, so send me an e-mail if you’re interested in selling it out of your shop or space!)
