DIY Chalkboard Frame {Before and After)

Remember the junk treasure picture I showed you last week?

Well, I shared the giant fork & spoon after in a post you can view HERE.
but I also wanted to share the after of the frames since they were popular among the ladies who commented :)

You can't tell it in the picture but the Blue Boy print was in really bad shape.
I'm pretty sure it had mold growing on the back of it, and it was ripped around the edges from being stapled into the frame.
So, I pulled out the staples and tossed it.
Actually, I didn't toss it. That was a lie.
I hung him in the garage to watch over me while I work. 
I'm guilty of not throwing away much of anything.
No. I'm not a hoarder.
I know that's what you're thinking.

Anyways, the frame was in great condition, though.
Here's the after:

The metallic chalk board has teal peaking through in the distressing, if you look hard you can see a little of it in the picture...

 They were both great additions to Simply Salvaged Home Accessories and they'll both be going to their new homes soon! 
Things like this deserve better than sitting in a thrift store.
...and that is what I'm for :)

Thanks for reading!!
