Old Mirror Turned Into Chalk Board

I got this old mirror from a friend and as it was pretty badly damaged . I absolutely loved the wooden frame and I decided to turn it into a shabby chic chalk board by painting it and adding some gorgeous decorative mouldings
This is the before picture. I removed the mirror and created the chalk board by painting an mdf board with chalk board paint
I glued on the mouldings and painted the frame.
To create the shabby chic look I distressed the areas and attached the chalkboard to the frame
