DIY framed chalkboard


I found this vintage frame months ago and I was unsure of the best way to repurpose it. The ornate wood was a beautiful colour and I would have loved to have kept it in its original condition, but alas, there were areas that had been drawn on or stained with paint. Spray painting it was going to be the simplest way to clean it up.20130225-173808.jpg
It took a few coats of glossy white spray paint to cover it thoroughly. I attached a blackboard to the back using strong adhesive and tape. Finally, I found an amusing quote about love and hung it on the wall.

      Thanks! I loved the quote too. So funny, but at the same time, a little bit true. 🙂
