If you've ever had anything double-matted and framed, you know how painfully expensive it is. Well, this a one of those pictures I had framed 15+ years ago. It was out-dated and the print was faded by sun-exposure. I decided to make it a chalkboard by putting pretty black-printed paper under the glass, then using a chalkboard marker to write on top of the glass.
I think it turned out pretty snazzy. It's up-cycled and not in a trash heap.
