A friend gave me a picture frame a while back and the back of it where the stand is was starting to detach, she figured I’d find something to do with it and …… I did!
So first I spray-painted the glass that it came with with chalkboard spray paint from lowes. I was so excited to hurry up and use it I didn’t give it enough time to dry properly so it was kind of hard to write on. This is how it looked

It’s the same one you may have seen on the pallet table we made.
I was getting frustrated it didn’t write very well so I took the glass out and sprayed it again in the other side. A couple coats with drying in between. Then 2 days later I “seasoned” the chalkboard by rolling chalk in one direction over the whole thing then rubbing chalk over the whole thing the other direction.
I liked the frame but decided I wanted to paint it a different color to go with my decor better.

I don’t know if I will be keeping it in this spot because I want to make a much larger one to go on the wall behind the table but for now this will do šŸ‘Œ
