Chalkboards are my favorite form of decoration!
Really & Truly!
Earlier this year my friend and I went to Goodwill and I bought a bunch of frames! I wasn't exactly sure what my plan would be but I thought they looked like nice n' sturdy frames...at a decent price.
I saw BIG potential in this frame right here. I actually had it hanging in my bathroom for awhile until I had time to change it up. You know, to cover the blank wall :) (even though it's not my taste).
I used some blue tape to cover the outer frame. I bought some chalkboard spray paint and went to town spray painting! I did 2 coats.
I bought this kind from Walmart HERE. It works great!
Be careful, the spray paint really stains your hands. True story. :)
I also bought some blue-gray spray paint to do the frame. And then, I decided what to write on my new frame.
I also used the spray paint color to paint the other 2 frames I bought from the Goodwill. They were all gold and didn't really go with my vision for the bathroom. They are not *perfect* but I LOVE them! :)
Here are some of my other chalkboards I've made...
I love to look at them during the day as a reminder to myself. I also believe that my kiddos will be able to read them and memorize Bible verses from these frames some day.
This one was actually made with a chalkboard sticker over cardboard. Therefore, it is very difficult to write with chalk because the surface isn't as hard. But it still works :)!
I've been looking to purchase these chalkboard markers HERE. They look fun.
