VERY FIRST Fabulous Friday! : Chalkboarded: Oval Frame

I am SO EXCITED to announce that I am starting a weekly linky party called Fabulous Friday! I will be creating a unique button for it...but I wanted to get it ready for you guys anyway! Today will be the very first one, so link as many projects as you like. And please grab my button! (at the bottom of this post, right before the links)!

On to my project :)

I got this little frame for a buck fifty at Goodwill a long time ago and had kind of forgotten about it for a while. The other night, while thinking about projects that I had all that I needed for, I remember this little guy! I love the shape and really didn't even mind the gold. We just have nothing else gold so it was sorely out of place.
So I popped out the glass and chalkboarded the backing which was a conveniently smooth piece of particle board.
Then, I spray painted the frame itself with a black satin paint. I put it together and this is what I got!
So I took it upstairs and found the perfect spot for it!
 It was the perfect addition to our living room wall grouping! It is just the right shape to contrast all of the squareness that we had going in there.

I really love the way that it turned out and...the best part! I did not spend a penny (other than the initial $1.50). I may change what it says in it from time to time, but our name just fit it for now :)

PLEASE grab my button if you are linking up! :)
