I'm a cheater..

I fell in love with vinyl this weekend and I'm already cheating...
with chalkboard paint!
I've used chalkboard paint in the past but I rediscovered my love for it yesterday.  
After a weekend of laying low (due to stomach bugs)...the husband added shelves to a closet so we could organize the kid's toys.  
It's amazing how much motivation one has after being stuck inside!
Once the toys were put away...I wanted to tackle another (smaller) closet.  I got side-tracked by some plain white frames.  DING!  
I decided to paint the glass with chalkboard paint.  
I haven't decided if I want to paint the smaller frames.
The larger one will need something extra...but will probably end up in our kitchen.
For the amount of time I spent (~5 mins painting)
I think they turned out pretty cute.

Don't forget!!

I never thought to just paint it on the glass! I thought it was peel off! And I agree, not cheating! Hope you feel better!

Painting it on the glass is genius! I have a few frames I've been (Impatiently) awaiting the Husband to get me wood for, and I could have painted the glass!
