How to make your own chalkboard

How to make your own chalkboard:








My friend is an amazing hostess and she works full time from home. In her kitchen she has made a wonderful chalkboard where she writes up her weekly menu. This helps her place her online orders with ease.

How to Make your DIY Chalkboard:

Use a basic frame in the colour scheme of the room you want to display your chalk board in.

Paint the inside of the frame with chalk paint.

You can purchase chalk paint online and in all DIY stores, check the tin as some chalk paint will paint all surfaces and other are only suited to a specific  surface.

Place a shelf underneath to store your chalk, this too can be found online.

Uses for your DIY Chalkboard:

Display your weekly menu

Keep track of your families activities

Leave information for babysitters

I love this stylish, practical and fun way to communicate within the home. I hope I have inspired you to turn an unwanted frame into a chalkboard.
