Chalkboard Message Center from an old oval frame

I used some metallic rub-on medium, found in the scrapbook section of my art supply store to accentuate the details on the moulding. 

I found this beautiful frame with an interesting oval cut-out at an antique store.  It had a gaudy gold finish when I first discovered it.  I spray painted it with "Biscuit" semi-gloss spray paint and had my husband cut a piece of inexpensive MDF board to fit the opening.  The MDF didn't have to be a perfect oval, just large enough to cover the opening.  Then I painted the MDF with about 6 coats of chalkboard paint.  When it was dry, we used a strong wood glue to put it all together and strung picture wire on the back to hang.  The message board has a personality of its own.  My friends and family are always coming in the room to see "what the board says".  LOL.  I twisted a cup hook to the side and hung a jumbo piece of chalk from some kitchen twine.  Hope you like it!
