Make a Photo Frame Chalkboard

Make a Photo Frame Chalkboard

Posted 2013-02-05 by Natasha Stewartfollow
If you're after a fancier to-do list, then why not make your own mini chalkboard out of a photo frame. There are lots of great ornate photo frames around at the moment, and they come in a huge range of colours. Turning one into a blackboard is so simple, all you need is a bit of patience while it dries.



You can find chalkboard paint at most hardware stores, and you can find a range of pretty but cheap photo frames by heading to your local discount store.

Time: 1 hour

Materials:
Ornate Photo Frame
Blackboard Paint
Paint Brush
Chalk



Method:

  • First take apart your photo frame. You can paint straight onto the glass. If you're like me and manage to beak your glass before getting started, then just get a piece of card and cut it to the same size as the display picture that comes with the frame.



  • Start painting the glass or card. Try and paint all in one direction. Leave it to dry.



  • Once your first coat of paint has dried, paint a second coat. Leave it to dry.

  • Once the paint has dried completely you can reassemble the frame.



  • Your new blackboard can be used for anything, keep it on your desk or hang it on a wall. You can write on it with regular chalk, but for a cleaner look check out Chalk Ink . It writes like a marker, but wipes off with water.

  • If you make your own photo frame chalkboard share your pictures with us in the comments.
