DIY Chalkboard

Super fun, super easy DIY project I put together for our new kitchen!  Here’s what you do…

1.Find a picture frame or a mirror… doesn’t have to be anything too pricey.  I found mine at Goodwill for about $7.
2.Buy some chalkboard paint.  I found mine at Wal-Mart although the lady in the paint department told me they are going to stop carrying it.  They should have it at Lowe’s or Home Depot although our Lowe’s was sold out the day I went to buy some.
3. Remove the glass portion of the frame and apply 2 coats of chalkboard paint.
4. Let dry 24 hours.  Season your new chalkboard using the wide side of some white school chalk.
5. Chalk away!  These are great for posting dinner party menus or welcome messages!
