Instructions:

Step 1: Wash down the window pane making sure the glass is completely clean. Then tape every nook and cranny to make sure no paint gets on the window frame. Give three coats of chalkboard paint. Let the window dry for 24 hours and slowly remove the tape to make sure not to pull the paint off the windows.

Step 2: Paint the frame with crackle paint and let that coat dry for 30 min. Then paint with white acrylic paint on top of the prior coat. Allow it to dry for one hour. After it dries, look over where the paint crackled the most and make a mental note not to sand there.

Step 3: Sand the frame with rough grit sandpaper. Then use a finer grain sandpaper to get a genuine weathered look.

Sweet Vintage Elopement

I love sharing elopements on the blog, as you may remember this City Hall wedding in San Francisco and this elopement in New York City. Melissa and Ron eloped and immediately after went back home to take some photos together. Ron has a collection of vintage cars on their property, and Melissa looked adorable in her vintage dress and red heels. Photos by Shelly of Union Photography.

Junkyard Engagement Session

This adorable junkyard engagement session landed in my inbox a few days ago then yesterday I had the pleasure of meeting the lovely ladies April and Lindsey from Sweet Monday Photography. They were telling me that bride’s cousin owns this junkyard/old car shop since he’s an artist and uses scrap metal for sculptures but some of these vintage cars are just too sweet to be upcycled! The junkyard location has also been used for concerts before. Ah, stylish and hip Los Angeles, how I miss thee.

Thanks so much Lindsey and April for sending over these images! You can see more on their blog here.
