DIY: Chalkboard Frame


Happy Monday everyone! Sorry for the lack of posts last week but it was quite the crazy week between getting really sick and helping to run 3 events at work. But get excited, because I have a lot of exciting posts coming up this week. Starting off with this homemade chalkboard frame. It's a really easy and cheap project to make. I love making lists and checking things off. Seriously I do. I will even add something to a list after I have already done it just so I can check it off haha. So this chalkboard frame is great to keep beside a bedside table and jot down notes before you go to bed or write inspirational quotes to wake up to.

In case you can't read monday's quote: "Some people dream about success, while others WAKE UP and work hard at it."

Start off with a cheap frame. I bought mine at the Dollar Store
Sand off all the paint off the frame
Add a colour that you like. I decided to stick with the classic black and white theme.
Paint the glass of the frame with Chalkboard Paint (you may need 2 coats) and voila start jotting down notes!

Thanks for reading and have a great Monday!
