A Simple Painted Project - Picture Frame Turned Chalkboard

Today we are going to talk chalkboards. I was intimidated by them for a little while, but they are so simple. I have made many different ones over the years. I have always used Krylon's Spray Chalkboard Paint for painting on glass, and have had great results with it each time.

This frame started out like this. It was leftover from a friends yard sale a few years ago. The size and shape of the frame were perfect for a small, awkward wall in my kitchen.

I simply removed the backing and the glass. I sprayed the chalkboard paint directly to the front of the glass. It took 3 coats to get the nice even coverage I was looking for.

I have moved things around and am no longer using this as a chalkboard, but when I did, I used it for seasonal chalkboard art. (Thanksgiving, Christmas)

Do you have any chalkboards in your home? Have you used the spray chalkboard paint?

  1. I am going to pin this, I have actually been wanting to do this... but, it isn't at the top of my priority list right now. I have way too many craft projects going on! lol!! The finish looks pretty good, too! I always worry about spray paint being uneven or dripping... as much as I use it, I know how much of a PITA it can be sometimes! Especially if you overspray!

  2. I hear you, on the list of projects! It's never ending!

  3. That is awesome! Curb finds are my favorite!

  4. You are always so creative! :)

  5. Such a neat makeover! Love the bold color! Would love to invite you to share this or any other DIY at our link up party on my blog please :) Have a great weekend!
