My New {Magnetic} Chalkboard!

My awesome sister, made me this super cute chalkboard for my birthday! I had been wanting to make a chalkboard for a long time, but just hadn't gotten around to it yet.

She found the frame at a thrift store for around $12 and just primed and painted it. Then she got a piece of sheet metal from Home Depot for around $10. She cut the sheet metal down to size and then primed it and painted it with chalkboard paint.

It is so cute! I absolutely love it. I made a little banner to go at the top, using my cricut. I hung the banner up using a couple magnets I had on our refrigerator. I would love to make or buy some other cute magnets to add to the chalkboard. I love that its magnetic.

I can't wait to decorate it for all the different holidays! 

(P.S. Does anyone know a good way to clean a chalkboard. I've just been using a wet rag but is there a better way?)
