So for starters - I decided to make the chalkboard part of the board out of cardboard. I know what you are thinking - your going to make a chalkboard out of cardboard? Yep - I sure am. And here is why - there was a perfectly sized piece of cardboard in the back of the frame of the yard sale mirror. No cutting, no measuring - it is already there. So I sprayed my lil piece of cardboard with two coats of chalkboard spray paint and then rubbed down the surface with chalk.
Its so thin! But it works - you can write on it, erase and then write again! Chalkboard in a can might be one of the coolest thing has ever been created.
So here is the finished product all hung up in our kitchen! I love it! That was our very healthy dinner! (With ice cream - of course! Gotta save my calories for something!)
And a shot from a little farther back - with my bird plates!
So the question of the day is - have you ever used Chalkboard Spray paint and if so what for? If not - what would you love to spray some on to make some instant Chalkboard magic? Inquiring minds want to know!
