He stripped the frame off of it
With only a tiny bit of scraps left, I ended up with a whole stack of chalkboards, yipee!
I simply cleaned them, then popped it into some thrift store/yard sale found frames, then put a bead of hot glue around the edge to hold it in the frames (it is thicker than the frames.)
Here’s the original one that set the wheels in motion, made from a curb-side wooden window.
So, now it’s your turn! If you didn’t get a chance to email me your link, just leave it in the comments and I will glady enter your link onto the post (as I can). One lucky party-goer will win this 5×7 version, complete with vintage (about 50 year old) chalkboard insert. The color of the frame will be your choice — original gold, white, cream, aqua, pink — oh, just pick a color! Please make sure to link back to the party so everyone can get in on the fun! I will also be visiting all of your links, and handing out awards to the best of the bunch!
