DIY Chalk Board Frame

Here is another one of my projects that I made from my new Pinterest obsession!  I found a metal platter at an opp shop for $2. I loved the shape & detail on the edge. I had a spare piece of wall near a cabinet that needed something so a new chalkboard was in order! Below is my work in progress - 1-2 coats of paint...

I purchased a Dulux paint sample pot at Bunnings. I already had the paint mixed for my DIY glaze. The colour I used was Dulux Klavier. I made my own DIY chalk board paint - there are a heap of recipe's on my Pinterest board "DIY paint & restoration techniques". Once the paint was dry I lightly rubbed white chalk all over the board & then wiped it off with a dry cloth & then wrote my message. As you can see I am no artist :)

Below is a picture of my finished product...
