I purchased this very large frame at Hobby Lobby for dirt cheap (it was a mirror & clearly the glass fell out) some time ago with hopes to turn it into a cork board. Now that it has been sitting in our garage for close to six months, I've decided it needs to be a chalkboard rather than a cork board. I realized that I have pictures and notes hanging on the refrigerator (which is right next to the wall I'm going to hang this on) and if this were a cork board it too would have mass amounts of "stuff" hanging on it.
Too much clutter for me!
This is the wall the chalkboard will hang on one day in the very near future. Please excuse the lovely trash can. But I spy a very handy Willow House Nola Bucket, do you?
We're using Rust-Oleum Chalkboard paint (highly recommended by many). I'm also going to be referencing Small Words Blog for tips because her chalkboard project was a huge success! I'm hoping we can say the same once ours in complete.
Have you made a chalkboard before? What paint did you use? Do you have any tips for me? Please share!
