"Be Awesome" Chalkboard

Happy Sunday!  Hope this finds you well!  How was your weekend???  My hubby was out of town on a "guys" golf trip.  So....my son and I flew solo this weekend.  We managed to keep busy everyday and we spent a lot of time with my sister and her kids.  Needless...to say, my four year old is TIRED tonight.  It was a good weekend!

I found this empty frame at a garage sale (where else, right?).  I am not sure what it was intended for, as it had no glass or cork board behind it.  


I decided that it was a great start to a chalkboard.  It had a little ledge that would be a fabulous place to hold chalk.  I spray painted the frame green and then painted the board with chalkboard paint.  There was a little opening so I took some scrabble pieces and spelled out "Be Awesome".  Here is the finished product!!!  I also happen to love the quote too.

  11. I believe the board was originally a calendar holder for a full size calendar. At least it looks like the one I have.Mine holds a Lang Calendar. Great transformation!
