I started with this picture.
I saved the botanical print that was in it, who knows what it will end up as! First step is removing the glass. I am using this paint, about $3.99 at the hardware store. (sorry for the blurry pic)
Another very cool find are these chalkboard ink markers. Easy to write with and they wipe off with a damp cloth. They can write on glass, metal, etc.. About $10 at Michaels's, but of course I had a 50% off coupon!!
You can truly make a chalkboard on anything~ a children's tabletop, a sign, a platter, a cookie sheet (then it will be a magnetic chalkboard!!), the possibilites are endless! Maddy begged me to let her spray the back of her bedroom door, making it into a huge chalkboard. Ummmm, NO! She had to settle for a picture frame. Whatever crafty things she sees me doing she is now wanting to try, it's fun.
Thanks for looking and make my day, leave a comment below!
