DIY Chalkboard: Pinterest Challenge

I'm excited to be participating in Young House Love's Pinterest Challenge.  My "pinspiration" was this sweet little chalkboard made by Mark Montano.

I started out with an empty frame that I spray painted a high gloss gray. 

 I then took the thin wood piece from the back of the frame, and used chalkboard paint to completely cover it. It took two coats.  A little hot glue joined the two pieces together...and it was ready to hang.  

This was such a quick project, and adds a great personal touch to any space.

Have you been implementing any Pinterest projects lately?  Do share!

TDC Before and After


  1. Great job! I did a similar chalkboard for our kitchen and I love to use it to stay organized. Chalkboards are the best, aren't they?

    1. Yes they are! I find myself looking around and thinking what else can I make into a chalkboard.
