Picture Frame Chalkboard

A framed chalkboard is a great way to remind yourself of things you need to do or you can write yourself fun inspirational notes each day. Rather than fumbling around looking for a pen and something to write on, you have an instant notepad without wasting paper.

You can match it to your décor and put it anywhere in your house. I like to have my chalkboard in the kitchen or near my front door. I write notes to remind myself of important things I need so I don’t forget them on the way out. This would also be great for kids in school to help them to remember important events, homework or tests.

This is a perfect way to repurpose a picture frame where the glass has broken or you can use an inexpensive frame to create this stylish chalkboard.

Materials

  • Picture frame
  • Foam board or sturdy smooth surface cardboard
  • Chalkboard spray paint (available at craft stores)
  1. Cut a piece of foam board the size to fit the inside of the frame.
  2. Spray and even coat of the chalkboard paint onto the foam board and let dry. Repeat with the second coat and let dry.
  3. Fit the piece of foam board into the frame as you would a picture. Make sure it fits in tight so the chalkboard does not move when you are writing on it. It’s that easy. Enjoy!
