Chalkboard {at last}!

I finally joined the millions and made a chalkboard for our house. 


I made it out of a picture frame we inherited (a fancy word for...nobody else in the family wanted it) and a piece of wood we had sitting around our house from who-knows-what.  The wood just happened to be the right width for the frame and my dear husband cut the length down just a hair for me.

 
The kitchen part is a hopeful future prediction...we have one side primed and painted with the first coat...


Here's a before of the frame...gold and pretty ugly, but I loved the green ribbon around the center and the details.


Nothing a can of $0.97 Lowe's spray paint couldn't handle.

How do you find time for these wonderfully crafty things? I should hang around you more often. ;)
