DIY Easy Chalkboard Frame

I have been dying to do a chalkboard craft for the longest and I have finally gotten around to it!  This was super easy... a few materials and about 10 minutes (a half hour if you include drying time) and I have a frame that I am excited to put in my home!

1) Any picture frame with a hard removable back (not cardboard or one with a missing back)
2) Spray paint in any color
3) Chalkboard paint (I got my Rustoleum Chalkboard spray paint from WalMart for $3.97

First take apart your frame carefully and follow the directions on the spray paint can to paint 
your frame.

Next take the back off of your frame and spray or paint on your chalkboard paint.  The spray was fairly thin so I did several coats but it dried quickly.

Bonus: It's always nice to have a buddy to keep you company!

When everything has dried, put your frame together and write away!


  1. I love that You..Tiff and I all have this color in our home! We can totally swap decor when we get tired of looking at it. HAHAH!
