$1 Yard Sale Find to Chalkboard

Hello everyone!! Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!  A couple of weeks ago I saw this picture at a local yard sale for $1.  I loved the design of the frame and the first thing I thought of was a cute little chalkboard for the girl's room.  What do you think?
