What a bargain!

                      Welcome friends hope everyone had an enjoyable weekend!

Thought I would share with you my 50 cent yard sale find.

I knew right away what I was going to do with this the moment I laid eyes on it.

No price on it and I asked how much and the lady said 50 cents I said sold.

Brought it home went right to my studio and started painting......

Can you guess?

Yes,  so easy with chalk paint isn't it.  After 2 coats of painting and a day of drying I thought I
would stain the frame rather than paint it.

Love the way it turned out.  Don't you !

                                                        Now to find a home for it.

                                  I'm sure I'll have no problem. Any takers???

                                                          Love to Create!!

                                                  Thanks for following along!
