DIY Chalkboard Frame

So lately everyone has been going on and on about their new chalkboards, which are all adorable. The other day while perusing through the aisles of Home Depot, I spotted chalkboard spray paint! I had never heard of it before! So I called my awesome sister-in-law to ask how legit it was and she said it has four stars on Amazon! So I naturally grabbed it up! Then I got to thinking... What in the world am I going to use this on? A few months ago I had one of my favorite photo frames broken by my best friend (which she vehemently denies, but I was there and saw it happen!) ANYWAYS, I pulled it out of the craft chest and behold! It would work perfectly. So here's the gist of the fun-

broken frame beforehand-

I first sanded down the glass and then primed it before I added the chalkboard spraypaint. You have to wait 24 hours before playing with it... I added three coats of spray paint :) {not including primer}

Then I hot glued everything together...

Then I had exactly what I wanted! A mini chalkboard! It will be on the wall with the two other matching rectangle frames I have around it in no time. I love the way it turned out.I doodled on it for about an hour after I was finished! :)
