I have been in such a crafting mood lately and making the chalkboard was so easy.
1. Start with an old frame, or buy a new one that matches the size you want for the chalkboard
2. Measure the the size of the glass in the frame and go to your local hardware store to have a piece of plywood cut to fit. ( or ALV purchased a frame with a canvas picture, and the canvas worked just as well as the wood)
3. Buy a primer ( preferably wood, if that's the base of your chalkboard ) and prime the side of the wood you plan to chalkboard.
4. Purchase chalkboard spray at your local Home Depot or Lowe's, and spray the base of the board until covered, you may need to do a few coats. Let sit overnight.
We also had an old plastic white table that was in our backyard and discolored/gross from the weather.
I don't have a picture. but it looked sort of like this:
It was such a quick inexpensive fix for the table, and now I want to chalkboard everything.
Next, I really want to try to chalkboard the foot of the wine glass ( under the stem), that way everyone could write their name on the glass and it would act like a personalized wine charm. ... Post to follow :)
Have you ever used Chalkboard spray?
