Follow these way too simple steps to make your own Chalkboard out of a picture frame!

Step 1: The Frame

First, I found the perfect frame for this project.  It used to be black, so I spray painted it white.  The white is a great contrast for the black of the chalkboard (although they make any color chalkboard paint these days).
Gorgeous! Love it.
Thank you!
I love it! but... where do you keep the chalk?
Thanks! I just keep it on the top of the frame. It's a thick frame, so the chalk doesn't roll away. :O)
