I love this simple DIY Framed Chalkboard. It’s a quick and easy project and coming in under $7 is a steal! We have seen Framed Chalkboards sell for upwards of $60 and $70! Do a little scouring at your local Goodwill or thrift store and search for good wooden ornate frames in any shape.
plywood or MDF board
chalkboard spray paint
spray paint for the frame
Step 1: Remove any ugly, unfortunate print that your frame may contain.
Step 2: Clean the frame and make sure it’s dry
Step 3: Spray the frame and let dry
Step 4: Cut your plywood or MDF board to fit inside the frame
Step 5: Prime the wood with white paint
Step 6: Spray several coats of the chalkboard spray paint onto the wood
Step 7: Let wood dry for 24 hours (per instructions on the back of the can)
Step 8: After the wood has dried for 24 hours, use your staple gun to hold your blackboard in place
Step 9: Rub the side of a piece of chalk over the whole chalkboard and wipe clean
Step 10: Your chalkboard is ready to go! Enjoy!
