DIY Chalkboard

So, my weekend was full of DIY projects for one of my brides and we’re only 6 weeks away from the big day so I’m getting organised with all of the finer details.  For me, this is the best bit.  I love bringing everything together and seeing the finished article.

Today I’m bringing you one of the easiest DIY projects ever. Fact.  These cute chalkboards can be used for almost any purpose; from kitchens to wedding receptions, the uses are endless.

Materials needed: Photo Frame, chalkboard paint, a paintbrush and some chalk.

Obtain a photo frame and give it a good clean, making sure there is no grease or dirt on the surface that you are going to paint.

Take your paint and brush and paint the surface.  Ensure the area you are painting in is well ventilated.

After a few hours, paint a 2nd coat if needed.

Leave to dry for 24 hours and hey presto, you now own your very pretty chalkboard.

This photo frame pictured cost just £3.59 to turn into a chalkboard!  From the one pot of paint I have already transformed 3 other old photo frames into fabulous and useful pieces of art.
