I am very excited about this project.  I found this killer frame at the on-campus library sale for $2.00.  That's right!  Every summer, the library gets rid of stuff!  I was thrilled for this buy!

I knew immediately the frame needed to be painted gold and the inside painted with chalk-board paint.  Perfect for my office and SO SIMPLE!

First, I primed the frame (I had the primer, so it cost me NOTHING).

I prepped the frame for spray paint!
Mur-Man loved it!  I had to buy the spray paint for just over $3.00! 
I let Mur-Man spray an elephant (from a rummage sale--an old purchase!)

I put four coats of chalkboard paint on it and primed it with a layer of chalk!
It's all set and ready to be hung in my office.  Total cost was around $5.00!  Plus, I am really loving the gold frame!  I am into that!
