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. Be sure to give this do it yourself project a try. You will be happy you saved yourself so much money!
DIY Framed Chalkboard:
plywood or MDF board

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!
