I found an old oil painting in an antique store for around $5.00.  I liked the simple frame and the size of the piece, but wasn't too crazy about the actual picture.  So, I sanded the picture down, and applied several coats of chalkboard paint

Studio Finishes® Chalkboard Paint

And, I thought that the red frame would be a nice contrast.

The Bug absolutely loves sitting at the kitchen table and using the chalkboard to practice his letters and spelling.  It has saved Mommy's sanity many times while making dinner.

Here he is suprising Daddy by spelling his name!

We had no idea that he could write anything other than "Nate".  Sometimes is scary to think about all this kid knows!

Happy crafty!
