Major Work On Child's Vintage Easel Chalkboard

I picked up this little cutie for a song, otherwise I would not have messed with it.
There were no "graphics" left on the the winding window at the top, so I found one of the vintage posters that they now sell in all antique shops and cut it to size.  Much gluing, clipping and time later....only to discover I did it backwards!  argh  The above is a picture of it backwards.

More gluing, clipping and time passing.
I got the top part done.

Then I attached chains to both sides so that the
legs would stand up.

Then I repainted the chalkboard.
So cute, so worth it.
