I found this elaborate frame at a thrift shop for $25. I still think it was too much for the frame, especially because it had a weird red velvet background thingy. I used chalkboard paint that I bought at Ace Hardware for $13. Don't waste your money on the chalkboard spray paint. You will end up wasting it and it won't go as far as the regular chalkboard paint will. I put four coats of the chalkboard paint on this and I used glossy white spray paint on the frame.
