chalkboard

You know those quotes I've been posting every Sunday? (here) Well I thought I would post about the chalkboard that I write the quotes on! I found this framed print on the side of the road with a granny couch and took it home. Turns out a LOT of people have this exact picture. I really liked the gold frame, but I ended up painting it to match the living room.



I took some progress pictures, but I don't have a clue what happened to them. Sorry! I did the chalkboard part first because it was a spray, then I used the gray paint from the living room to do the frame. And...


Yay! After this first drawing we did on there it got dirty...and I haven't cleaned it yet. I'd like for it to be nice and black again, so I think I might clean it soon. Anybody got a good method for cleaning a chalkboard? I've seen a ton of different ways online, but I don't know which one to try.
