Chalk Board Redo

Hello friends!
I hope everyone is having a great week! We are. Its been busy!
I'm looking forward to the weekend. I love Sundays! They are always pretty restful.
You might remember this frame I bought at a garage sale almost two years ago!? Wow, time flies!
 I had great intentions for it but never took the time to make them happen.
 It was used as decoration on the mantel and I really loved it just like that...
 (This was before the mantel remodel. I'm so glad to be rid of that ugly orange brick!)
...but after the mantel remodel, I finally decided to make the transformation.

All we needed was a thin board and some chalk board spray paint. We, as in my wonderful husband, ended up buying a piece of dry erase board because it was the right thickness, he cut it out, and just spray painted the back of it.

So it went from a frame to a cute chalk board!

 Now I just need to learn how to write all fancy and cute!! Any ideas?? I might just call my big brother and SIL! They are great at that kind of stuff!
I hope all is well in your neck of the woods!
Have a great week!
P.S. Is anyone else getting spring fever?? I sure am!
