diy rustic chalkboard

I had purchased a few framed paintings that needed new life and the joy of mixing things up by combining my little one’s play area with our living room.

My little munchkin loves using her chalkboard and this design is so much more appealing than the Ikea ones!  Personalising our space with diy projects makes my heart sing.  It’s where we hang out every single day and it is home.

Take a framed painting/photo frame//use painter’s tape in the right places//coat twice with chalk paint (mine was Kid Gloves white by Valspar) + twice with chalkboard paint.  I distressed the frame using a light sandpaper to give it a rustic feel.

Oh, fancy that!
