From Lame to Super Awesome Frame

We started out one Saturday morning at a garage sale for an elementary school.  They had some amazing finds!  I instantly found a vintage school desk and a hand crafted wooden frame.  I still need to paint the desk but as soon as I saw the frame I instantly knew what it's destiny would become.

I picked out a beautiful aubergine spray paint and got to work.  We had an extra piece of  MDF, which the hubs cut to fit for the opening.  It was then painted with chalkboard paint and nailed into place.  It's perfect for my girls, especially knowing that chalk can be cleaned off almost everything!  As you can see they have already gone to town.
