I made mention in a previous post (about our hallway makeover) about chalkboard I made out of a picture frame.
I have an 11 x 14 frame that I just love! The glass had broken during one of our moves and I hadn’t gotten around to getting a new piece of glass.
But the inside portion of the frame is a great piece of wood. Most are cardboard these days, but this was kind of a little surprise waiting for me. I had decided before knowing that it was wood and not cardboard that I wanted to make it into a chalkboard. I thought I’d have to get a piece of wood for it. Turns out this was great the way it was!It doesn’t always happen this way. My father-in-law always says, “It takes twice as long as intended and costs three times as much as you thought,” about any given project. Usually this is true.
So, I painted the back using chalkboard paint
And I sprayed the frame white
(it used to be black).
Put them together and there you have it! So easy, it’s barely a tutorial.
