Book Page Frame Chalkboard

I found this great old frame at an antique sale.  It was in rough shape, but I loved its size and shape.

I painted the edges with creamy white, making sure to paint a little border on the inside so no wood could show around the pages. Then I just applied the book pages using Mod Podge.

I used a mixture of book pages with different shades.  I don't know if you can see it, but on the top, I used a page from a hymnal with the title "Count Your Blessings".  It's fun to throw in little details like that.  Plywood painted with chalkboard paint was screwed to the back.  This one is going to my space at the antique mall.

I just love, love, love, book page and sheet music projects and I have another one to share soon.  I hope you will come back to see it.  Meanwhile, I'll be joining all these ladies for some blog parties.
