Chalkboard menu

So i've been playing around with chalkboard paint and I've been having a lot of fun. I had two old frames that I really didn't like. So I painted them and to made them into something new. 
The first frame I didn't take a before picture, but it was on just a plain oak color. And so I aged it a little, sewed a burlap pocket and wha la. A new Menu board.







This frame was hideous before. But after a lot of paint it worked out, and I added some more chalkboard paint to embellish it.

You have got to be one of the most creative people I have ever met. Honestly. Your pictures are always crisp and fun, your sewing and crafting ability always seem to astound me. Keep it coming woman! I love it all

I love how you use items that you already own and just make them better and more pleasing. Crafty!

L.O.V.E what a darling idea. I absolutly love the burlap bag. What a darling idea to have papers for notes... i'm assuming.. and the way that you painted it vintage. love it.

Now you need to write a tutorial on how you aged the frame, and created that burlap bag. I might be stealing your idea :)

These are both lovely makeovers but that first one is so beautiful! Is that one of those old wood calendar frames from the 80's??
