I have been wanting to do this little project for a long time, and I’m so excited it has finally happened! My kitchen has a chalkboard now!
I found the frame on my first trip to a thrift store. I went in looking for one specifically and found this one which I thought would work. I had wanted it to be more ornate and detailed but couldn’t find anything like that, but this was a good size.
This sat in the garage for a couple weeks while I gathered my supplies and waited for a naptime where I could tackle this. Sadly the little one decided she doesn’t need naps anymore! So it took longer than expected. But anyways, couple of paint sessions later. Here it is.
I used Martha Stewart’s chalkboard paint from Michaels. And I painted the front of the glass (I had found via pinterest that it works, and yes it does) instead of a board or anything. The frame was spray painted with two layers of Rustoleum spray-paint in glossy white, which left no need for a top coat or varnish. Super easy, except not so much if you try to spray paint in the backyard while trying to keep your toddler busy with other things. lol. But that is the wonderful life of a mom!
Here it is hanging in the kitchen!
Thanks for stopping by!
