DIY: Picture Frame Turned Chalkboard

I found these matching framed pictures in a heap of junk one of my crazy neighbors left behind after they moved. At first I was like “eh” but then I was like “oooo” because I figured I could use the frames for something. Oh, and fun fact: this is a print of a painting by Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman herself, Jane Seymour. I mean we know she’s talented, but I didn’t know she was a painter. (I Googled it to confirm.)

Still life.

Anyway I took the print out (relax, relax, I didn’t waste it) and painted the glass with like 4 coats of black chalkboard paint. Do thin coats and let that crap dry very thoroughly between coats so it doesn’t peel off like a bad manicure. You know what I’m talking about. You might want to rough up the glass with some sandpaper too. This was already kind of scratched up so it worked fine.

I repainted the frame using Queen Martha Stewart’s metallic paint in Golden Pearl. It’s my favorite subtle champagne-y gold. Fancy.

After I put it all back together and let it the chalkboard paint cure for a couple of days (follow the directions on your paint can), it looked like this. I used Command picture hanger thingies to hang it over the entry way table so we can write things like reminders and our shopping list. Tada!
