my chalk-boards...


started from almost nothing. I got the idea from several other 'bloggers' to make my own chalk-board. and yes. I got over-zealous. and no. it does not look 'just-like-I-want' but for now its working and I am loving it!!!!
I bought the 'green' frame at Goodwill for a whopping $3. painted chalk-board paint(found at Wally-mart) smack over top of the glass. Let it dry and did it again!! and than I chalked it up!!! really. I rubbed chalk all over all 4 of them so that the 'chalk-board' part wouldn't look so 'new'. (by the way , the other 3 frames were sitting around waiting for such a rainy day!!!)
I am now hence-forth and for-ever more CRAZY about chalk-board paint!!! paint a whole door. a perfect spot for your kiddos to 'create' and the top of the door is 'your space' for grocery lists,love notes, reminders, or your own 'doodles'!!!
Paint 1 or 2 or 9 of the front of your cupboard doors for the same effect.
yep! its great stuff!!!
let me know what your ideas are!!!
be back in a minute or 6 or 92....


  1. Jen, I'm making these for nieces for Christmas, I got girly frames, painted em up with chalkboard paint, and then bought chalk at the loonie store...so they can doodle away themselves. It's fun stuff, eh? Yours look great!

  2. Yes, I love chalk board paint. I already have my electical box cupboard door (which is in my laundry room) painted black with the awesome stuff. Tomorrow I want to hit the 2nd hand stores to look for cheap frames! Then I will be busy for awhile... Bye.

  3. Love it! I think I'll paint one side of my boyz doors with this stuff...they'd think that was awesome to be able to WRITE on the door and not be in trouble for it!!! :) Laura
    Love your blog!

  5. This is the coolest idea! I love it! I have a thing for chalkboards (but don't have any). In fact I honestly had a dream about a chalk board last night...really. :) I may just have to try this!
