You all know I’m all about taking something and turning it into something else.
My bestie needed a cover for her electrical box.
Kind of long.
Kind of skinny.
I told her I would check out the hoard and see if there was any options.
I found an old picture. I thought it might be an option but it was not exactly the dimensions she gave me.
It will work!!
A picture though?? No way.
I knew I was holding on to this old picture for a reason. I’m not even sure where it came from. And while I searched through the hoard, I found another option for me. Two for the price of one!! $0. Even better.
Here is her “before” picture
And here is mine. Mine needed a few repairs before a transformation could be performed
Her picture was sanded to create a smooth surface. It would have been too hard to turn her picture around.
Both frames and pictures for painted black and each picture was coated with chalkboard paint. It took 3 coats to cover completely.
Here is her “better than new” chalkboard that now covers the unsightly electrical box
Never underestimate what something can be.
Just because it’s ugly, doesn’t mean it always has to be. It’s like plastic surgery:)
This is going to be the next project for “girls with power tools.” Save your old pictures.
Happy Friday friends.
