Chalkboards


I love chalkboards.  That my be obvious because I use them quite often in my photo backgrounds.  I just think they are so cool.


We decided to make some chalkboards of our own to sell this year at the craft boutique.  We used found frames & transformed them in to bright, cheerful chalkboards.


What do you think?

I love this post. I recently did the same thing but as a cork board and I love the outcome. What a great idea to make chalk boards as well.

Love this!!! I am not super crafty -- but I really want to try this!

One question: where do you look for frames? I'm assuming that "found frames" means you did not buy them? If so, I think I need to know your secret!

Peacemom said...

Or perhaps you bought the frames inexpensively somewhere and then made them beautiful?

Jenny Ross said...

Amazing chalk boards... Those beautiful frames look so cool
