I love chalkboards.
I currently have three of varying sizes.
It’s fun to write signs of celebration,
and inspiring quotes.
This is how I made my newest one.
On a thrifting trip this Spring,
with the best partner you could ask for,
(she brings chocolate!!)
I was quite successful.
I always forget to take a “before” picture.
So the one above is all I have of my “before” chalkboard.
It is a gold wooden frame with a cardboard picture of a little boy in it.
On a different trip, I found a small masonite children’s chalkboard.
You know the type…
It was green with lines painted on it
for children to practice their letters.
I brought it home and painted it with chalkboard paint
so it would be ready when I found the perfect frame!
It took hubby a couple minutes
to trim down the chalkboard to fit this “new” frame.
I tacked it into the frame with some small nails
and was good to go!
