chalkboard frame

i would just like to say that i have a new obsession with chalkboard spray paint.  it's pure genius and the projects are endless.

this weekend i decided that my recently repainted office needed a touch of chalkboard paint.

i had found a few years ago a large empty frame at an antique mall for about $10.  their are so many fun things to do with these frames so i had to pick it up.  i had a spot in another room outlining a small painting, but i recently changed that out so it needed a new home.  so i ran to home depot had the nice wood cutter guy chop down a 2 x 4 sheet of thin wood then spray painted it and with wood glue married the two.


now it has a perfect spot in my office ready to display my to-do list.

Looks fab! I too have been looking for a reason for using chalk paint. Want to share that I found this article on another blog about how to mix colors as well as other really cute ideas: http://thedailydigi.com/its-always-black-whiteor-is-it/

Have a great Friday!
