I thought I'd share a small project I just finished up last night. Sorry I forgot to take before pics. This frame started out being very modern with metal edges. I decoupaged some scrapbook paper on top of them. I painted two of the glass with chalkboard paint, and replaced the other two with some cork tiles I found at the Dollar Tree. I painted the cork black and waalaah, a new desktop message center. I still need to make some cute pushpins for it.

I just found Chrissie Grace's Chalkboard paint party! Check it out for some really neat projects.

That is such a cool project! Were the frames already glued together? I love the idea with the chalk board paint! You painted that right over the glass?

Really creative! I like the black and white.

Remodel Guy has a recipe for chalkboard paint. Then you can do it in any color for probably alot less. It was in a recent post.

Great project. I love the paper that you used on it. I would love to be looking at that message center everyday. I think that I have a few frames around here that I could transform. Thanks for the idea.
