crafternoon: DIY chalkboard

Posted on September 17th, 2012 by Tracey

I’ve been meaning to make this for a while – but for some reason, couldn’t find the chalkboard paint at Bunnings until this past weekend. we love our chalkboard decal so much, that i wanted to make a chalkboard for myself, to write big ass reminders or just play around with it whenever i had the chance.

so all i needed was that chalkboard paint (dulux brand was the only available, and about $20 for a 500ml can), a photo frame and a paint brush!

after giving the photo frame’s backing board a few coats, i let it dry in the warm sun and voila!

such an easy DIY project – i’ll definately experiment on different boards/backing as we go, the 500ml tin will last for ages since it’s such a small area and my sister has already requested one for her apartment…
