Repurposed Thrift Store Chicken


When is a chicken not a chicken...

Overlook the chicken for just a minute and notice the frame. 

This is not a frame that comes apart, the chicken is painted right in the center of this piece.

And the tag... don't even think I paid $4.99 for it.

It was 1/2 price day at the thrift store.

When is a chicken not a chicken? 

When it is a beautiful new chalkboard!

I gave the center of this oval piece a good sanding then a couple coats of chalkboard paint.

I added a metal number for decoration and that's it!

Sometimes you just have to look beyond the chickens.
