New Chalkboard!

I have had this frame for almost a year. It's been sitting in the garage waiting for me to decide what the heck to do with it!
The frame is big, 2 feet by 4 feet big. 
I bought the frame at Hobby Lobby...BUT NOT FOR $89.99! The frame was on the clearance isle for 90% off! Yup, I paid about 10 bucks for the frame!
I had my dad cut a piece of MDF board to fit perfectly inside the frame. 
I took the board out back and applied chalkboard paint to the board. 
While paint was drying, I had to do some touch up work to the frame. I am certain the frame was on sale because of the little chips on the frames. 
I took a sharpie to the frame and fixed it right up. 
After hanging up the new chalkboard, it seemed a bit big and black!  
So I decided to add a picture that I picked up at Wally World to break up the "blackness". 
There is still plenty of room to write happy notes to the family!

In the end, the chalkboard paint is really kinda cool!
