DIY-Framed Chalkboard


After seeing these all around blogland, I knew this was a project I'd like to try. It's only taken me six months to make it happen. This was super easy, though. Here's what you need:

-frame of your choice (mine is 16x20)
-piece of smooth wood cut to fit frame
-chalkboard paint
-paintbrush
-hubby (optional)
-ribbon (also optional)
-chalk



I got my frame (no glass or back) at Hobby Lobby during their recent 66% off clearance, it was $12. Hubby got me a smooth piece of wood cut just right. I painted the wood with a couple of coats of chalkboard paint and let that dry. Then hubby nailed the painted wood in the frame. I tied on some ribbon, hung it up and wrote a little message. And, there you have it - a framed chalkboard. I'm loving it hanging in my kitchen!
