new buys and chalkboard frame

Once upon a time, I bought a frame from Value Village.
I decided to try out something I saw a few times on the interwebs.

Before:
Robin's egg blue frame. 


After:
I painted it white, gave it a bit of a gloss, and used Chalkboard spray paint on the cardboard. Voila, framed chalkboard.


The most exciting part of my day? Finally recieving my urban outfitters order after nearly a month. And having to pay 20 dollars duties :l. Great ! But my purchases were so worth it.
