I have a lot of frames laying around. I have novelty frames from High School, special occasion frames from trips or birthdays. I have a lot. I also have a lot of frames I’ve painted black. Again, I have a lot of frames, especially one I don’t use.
While I like the end result of this project, I would recommend wearing gloves. I don’t mind getting my hands dirty, but chalkboard spray paint dries on your hands really gunky and it isn’t a pleasant feeling. That being said, this one is easy, but it takes a few hours.
All you need is some frames, you don’t intend on using, some chalkboard spray paint and chalk.
Step One: Prep your frames by sanding them down. This is especially important if they are glossy.
Step Two: Spray your frames with an even coat of chalkboard paint. Twice (for good measure). Let it dry. I let it sit for quite a while, just to be sure.
Step Three: Rub your chalk sideways, covering the whole surface, then rub off with either your fingers or a towel (or chalkboard eraser, if you have one on hand).
Step Four: Draw whatever you’d like on the frame with chalk.
