Upcycled Chalkboard

6:00:00 AM

I recently thrifted a very ugly picture in 
a really beautiful frame...
Luckily...
My Valspar free sample came today!


I popped out the picture and gave
the frame a coat of white. 


The frame looks beautiful in white!


Then I painted the backing board that
was inside the frame with chalkboard paint...



I let the paint dry, and then rubbed the side of the 
chalk over the board and erased it, this keeps the chalk 
writing from staining the chalkboard.


And the result is an awesome chalkboard
in a beautiful white frame!
