Hello folks, check out my latest project! For a while now I have had a D.I.Y chalkboard on my mind, and on my to do list. I have been looking for the right old frame to use and after my recent trip to Nova Scotia I picked up a great find for only $4. I loved the shape and size and the price! I thought about painting the frame but then decided I wanted to keep the old gold finish and mix it up a little and stay away from the spray can! Here's what I did. . . . .
Find a great frame - bargain at only $4
Pick up some MDF from local hardware store only $6
Used Benjamin Moore chalkboard paint from Sanctuary Paint ( my workplace- handy for a crafty person!) leftover from previous project. I used black but now it is available in any colour! Great product!
Finished chalkboard- after painting the MDF I glued it into the frame using " No More Nails". Then I prepared the board by using the side of the chalk all over it and then cleaned it off. This process is called "seasoning" it makes it easier to clean after. Then I added my quote of the day! Words to live by. . I'm going to change it up and keep it inspirational. This was an easy and quick project but very satisfying. Why not make your own. My crafting buddy Lisa did and she even made her own chalkboard paint!! Here's hers along with some other great examples.
Basically you can put chalkboard paint in or on anything and make your own board for important messages, dates or just something to make you smile or feel inspired by. . . . Another project checked off, onto the next.
