One of my friends gave me this amazing frame that used to house a mirror in its former life. I had it in my old place but never did anything with it, but now that we're in our new place, it completely matches our comforter. So the project was ON!
My plan was to take the frame and back it with some extra illustration board I had.
Since much like my aversion to spray paint, I have a thing against exacto knives. Honest to goodness, I have NEVER been able to cut anything in a straight line with those things. So I had to enlist the help of one of my art directors at work.
Once it was cut, I painted it with chalkboard paint and a foam brush. In 30 minutes it was dry. I mounted it to the back of the frame and VOILA! A chalkboard with a contemporary twist.
It goes perfectly in our room. Now the room is a work in progress, the nightstand needs to be refinished, painted black and fitted with new knobs, but it is coming together.
It was a really simple project and I love that we can change the message.
It's like revolving art!
So as a late arrival to the party, tell me what kind of projects you've done with chalkboard paint.
