What you will need

  • Thrifted frame
  • Scrap wood
  • Chalkboard paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Table Saw
  • Sander
  • Nails

What to do

1. Hit up your local thrift stores and find that perfect frame. You can easily paint your frame any color, but also leave it as it is if you love the wear and tear. Also, gather the rest of your supplies.

2. Measure and sketch out the backing of your frame.

3. Cut out the measurements with your scroll saw and sand smooth.

4. Make sure it fits nicely. Adjust accordingly.

5. Paint your wood with the chalkboard paint until you get the thickness you desire. Try doing at least 2-3 coats. Let dry completely.

6. Nail the chalkboard backing onto your frame, and you’re done!

This is the perfect little gift for that someone special or even for your own home decor! You can even find a frame with the backing already attached, so you wouldn’t even need any power tools! It’s perfect for writing out a list of to-do’s or display an artsy quote!
