Framed Chalkboard for the kitchen

I made this a while ago I just haven't posted it yet and I thought I'd share it on HGTV's rate my space community along with the other items I've shared but I wanted to post it on my blog first.

I had this picture sitting in the basement that I picked up for a $1.00 at a yardsale and i realized it was attached to a thin piece of wood and I thought I could turn it over and paint with chalkboard spray paint, I already had a can from the canisters. So I did two coats of the chalkboard spray paint and I painted the frame using the antique white from behr I already had then I distressed it and applied the antique glaze over it. After two days of letting it sit I rubbed chalk all over the board to cure it and then I put it up on the kitchen wall. I like to write down whats for dinner so the kids can't ask me a million times. When I went to Joann's fabric one day I found the tea cup and thought it would be perfect to hold the chalk. I think I paid $3.99 for it.
I just love chalkboard paint, do you?
