Here's another piece that I used the "faux chalkboard" technique with. I repurposed this frame, painting the glass with Chalky Finish paint. I cut the "Noel" ( a free SVG from Images by Heather M) from white vinyl and applied it to the glass. I then accented the image with white paint.
To finish, I stained the frame red, painted the holly berry branches and added a matching chalk paint border along the frame edge.
