I must admit my DIY chalkboard has been one of my favorite projects that I have done lately! I really wanted a chalkboard to write monthly milestones on for each monthly picture of C. I wanted a large enough chalkboard that it would show nice in pictures and I wanted it framed. What I was finding was the cost was running far higher than I anticipated, like over $100. I didn’t want to be in it for that much so I moved to DIY.
I searched different tutorials where there were some very basic ones like spray a piece of board and wallah you have a chalkboard, however I really wanted the frame looked. To get the framed looked it involved wood or molding and sawing, gluing etc. Anytime I can avoid any type of tool, it’s a good thing. It wasn’t until I was cleaning out my closet and came across an old door mirror that I had in college it clicked. The mirror had a white frame. It was cheap so it wasn’t real glass. I thought why the heck not try make this thing into a DIY framed chalkboard. I have nothing to lose.
