Thrifty Chalkboard Frames

4th of July Beverage Station
This past January, I purchased about 16 of these little frames from the Dollar General.

I think they were originally $1 a piece but, in January, they were marked down to 4 /$1!  They were the perfect size for little chalkboards and it was a perfect craft for my 10 year niece!  Savvy is babysitting her this summer and she gets bored quickly so I let her paint them!

I covered the countertop, gave her a sponge brush and let her at it!  It kept her occupied for awhile!

I used one here for the water dispenser at our 4th of July party!  Have you done anything with chalkboard paint lately?
