I found this old frame at a garage sale for 3 bucks. It was just that - a simple frame, no glass, no backing - nothing inside. Just an ugly old brown frame. But not for long! I spray painted is with a Rustoleum Aubergine Painter's Touch spray paint, then sealed it with a Minwax Polyurethane Gloss finish. I cut a piece of Plywood to fit the frame, sanded it, then painted it with 2 coats of chalkboard paint. I attached it into the frame with wood glue.
