old wall hanging - new chalkboard decoration

I found this old wall hanging painted an ugly green. I think it is made for a calender to hang on? Anyway, the first thing I thought of was CHALKBOARD!!! So I bought it and painted the main part with Valspar chalkboard paint. I then covered that part with tape and newspaper and spraypainted the rest Ivory. After it dried, I sanded the edges and rubbed stain on the edges and anywhere that I wanted it to look antiqued. It is hanging by my front door and is great for keys to hang on and REMINDERS! I am so glad I spent the four dollars! :)

Where did I find it? DI
 How much was it? $4
