Haley is my precious niece. I think I'm going to give this to her on her first birthday….it's in April…I got excited…..
Here's how I did it. First, gather the raw materials:
Chunky frames work especially nice. I found this antiquing in downtown Newnan. Someone had already painted it black.
Next, prime it with a coat of spray paint:
While that's drying, go ahead and paint your board with its first coat of chalkboard paint.
I put two coats of primer on my frame. Then I put two coats of white spray paint over top. I think this was the first coat:
I especially like that you could see a little of the black peeking through the white. Made it look a little more shabby chic.
Then, voila! Put the two pieces together (I'm going to attach them using a little silicone caulking). Don't forget to mark up the chalkboard with a layer of chalk and erase it before it's ready for use.
