Bill and I picked up this old beat up frame at an antique store while we were on a date. We painted the frame, Bill cut out a board, and he painted it with chalkboard paint. We still have to put some hooks on it to hang it up. As for the size, it wasn't quite as big as I was hoping for so we brought in the lockers from the garage to fill in the blank space. I'm really liking how it all came together.
