DIY Chalkboard!!

We love DIY projects and here is one that was so much fun!

We found this frame at an antique store. It is a fun shape and thought it would make an awesome chalkboard!!

Start by taking it apart. Take the back off of the frame. Apply 1 coat of chalkboard paint to the back portion. I used a chalkboard paint from Hobby Lobby. They are all the same.

Apply 3 coats and let dry in between each coat. Once it is dry, take a piece of chalk and condition the board. Using the chalk length wise (laying chalk on its side) draw over the entire board, applying a layer of chalk.
