Curvy frames seem to pop up everywhere lately! Have you seen them before? They are fun and really add beauty to any room decor! Professional photographers use them to present their artwork in and lately I see unfinished ones such as the ones I got from zz bob’s. Bob and Pam are a couple that love cutting out unique shapes from MDF and so were their curvy frames made.
I ordered some for myself and got some as a freebie for doing this review. I was pleasantly surprised by how fast the package arrived and how well the frames were made! They have very smooth (I mean VERY smooth!) edges and even the back where the picture space is was nicely finished.
Okay, off to my review project:
I wanted to do a fun thing with chalkboard paint and I chose this shape of frame:
First, I gave it a coat of primer:
I let it dry overnight (you don’t have to but I did this project in several steps)
Then I used Valspar chalkboard paint (available at Home Depot or Lowe’s):
With a soft paint brush I painted one coat on and let it dry (overnight). I made sure to paint the inside and outside of the depth as well:
It got another coat and then it showed optimal coverage:
From a Dollar Store frame in 4×6″ I took the glass and inserted it into my curvy frame….
…….then with chalk I wrote my little one’s name and some hearts to show off just how much I love her!
A BIG thank-you to ZZ Bob’s shop for the review items!! I’ll have more to show off soon for ya!
