What you’ll need:
- 1 picture frame complete with glass
- 1 can of Rust-Oleum chalkboard spray paint
- 2″ wide painter’s tape
- 1 package of chalk
What to do:
- If you don’t like the frame color, you can always paint the frame first and let it dry for 24 hours before beginning the rest of this process.
- Use the painter’s tape to cover the frame, but keep the glass exposed. You can prime the glass by giving it a light sanding or simply go on to the next step.
- Shake the spray paint can for 1 minute.
- Hold the spray can about 10–12 inches away.
- Begin spraying in the fluid motion back and forth, moving your way down the frame.
- Let dry for a few minutes.
- Spray another coat.
- Let dry for up to 24 hours.
- You’re finished! You can write and erase your new chalkboard completely after 24 hours of drying.
Now, you have a surface on which to write to-do lists, grocery lists, or a menu for your dinner guests.
