I’m a huge fan of do to lists and anything that will help keep me organized in life so it was only a matter of time before I found a wall that needed to be filled with a fun chalkboard! This DIY was easy to assemble and I am having so much fun with it! Do you have a chalkboard frame in your house or will you be creating one in the near future?
You will need the following
- Framed mirror
- Scotch or painters tape
- Chalkboard paint
- X-acto knife
Step 1: Clean the mirror of any smudges and let it dry. Once it’s dry you can begin outlining the frame with tape.
Step 2: Apply a generous layer of chalkboard paint. Let it dry for about four hours and then apply a second layer. When applying the second coat be sure to apply it gently. Apply as many layers as you see fit, I applied four layers in total.
Step 3: When the paint is dry use the X-acto knife to cut a line around the inner frame. This will insure that chalkboard paint won’t break apart around the edges.
Step 4: Begin doodling or make a list on your new chalkboard!
