I made another chalkboard, I just cant get enough. You can check out my 1st one HERE. This time I used a frame from Goodwill that my mom had lying around.
My husband cut a piece of plywood to fit right in the lip of the frame.
Then I painted the chalkboard paint right on. I used the liquid quart paint and roller method this time as opposed to the spray paint. I actually liked this way better. It only took 2 coats and went on way smoother and easier.
Then, last week I saw Jess from Craftiness is Not Optional post this on Instagram. It’s a really cool and easy chalkboard lettering technique that she got from Hello Beautiful Blog. Its my new go to way to write on chalkboards! Once the paint dried, I used this technique for writing a little heading on my chalkboard.
I used wood glue to hold the plywood into the frame and let it dry over night. Don’t forget to season it by rubbing chalk on its side all over and erasing. Voila… a new chalkboard using only scraps!
Here it is in its new home. And a little sneak peek of my craft room :) My husband and I have been working hard to make this place the “worlds best craft room”. And it is.
