DIY Chalkboard Frames

Once upon a time I had a fruitful trip to Goodwill.  Here is a refresher:

See those God-awful, ugly green frames on top?  These ones?

Well, I got two of them for a dollar each!  I spray painted the frames gray and sprayed the glass with chalkboard paint.

Then added some simple flowers made from hot glue and crepe paper:

Due to these little flowers I'm pretty sure I will no longer have a fingerprint on my right ring finger.  The glue gun exploded all over it.  Normally I would have rushed straight away to the sink but we were in the garage and Landon was in his swing.  In hindsight I probably should have just ran inside and soaked my finger, hitting the garage door on the way in but in my panic I wrestled a not so happy toddler out of his swing and into the house and those few precious moments caused my finger to blister, badly.  So that's my glue gun war story.  At least the final product turned out well:
