Maybe it is because school starts in a few days . . . Maybe it is because I, myself, am a former teacher . . .but for some reason I was thinking about


As a kid, I always wanted to be the one who got to go outside and smack the erasers

together in an attempt to clean them.

As a teacher myself, I just wanted a white board.

But TODAY, I wanted to make myself a chalkboard!

You wanna make one too?
You only need a few things:
I used a glass frame that I got on clearance years ago from Walmart. I took the back of mine off because this frame used to have a vinyl message on it. So really it is being repurposed. You should keep the back of your frame in tact.
Chalkboard Paint
Paint Brush

I didn't really like using these craft brushes, but at the moment it was all I had. I applied two coats and let them dry completely between each coat. I wish I would have added a third coat so it may be in your best interest to do so.

In any case follow the directions on your chalkboard paint label.

This is what it looks like after the first coat.

It won't be too long before you have a product that looks like this . . .

And you can use it for all sorts of things like this:

or this

or something really cute like this:

or this:

or this:

The possibilities are endless!

Happy Crafting!
