So I've been working on this project for quite some time. Just needed to buy and cut ply board . . . so that's why it took forever. Anyway, I walked into my favorite thrift store in vegas, months ago, and saw this frame on the top shelf. I asked how much it was and the guy said $5. I'll take it! Although it was a beautiful painting (they had painted this picture on the glass - - is there a name for that type of art?) I just wanted that frame. Imagine that.
So . . . I removed the glass painting (still have it - - not sure what to do with it),
spray painted the frame white with a few coats,
bought ply board and cut to size of glass,
spraypainted with chalkboard spraypaint with at least 2 coats,
placed the ply board in the frame and placed nails around it so it would stay in.
And there you have it. A fancy, little chalkboard for my daughter to color on that's hidden behind the couch . . . so she'll stop coloring on our hdtv (no joke).
