How To: Create a Chalkboard Frame

So, yesterday I wrote about how I wanted to create a chalkboard frame for my kitchen.

The rest of the story...from picture frame to chalkboard frame!

Here is the 16"x20" frame I purchased from (believe it or not)
Joanne Fabrics ON SALE for 40% off ($11.99!!!)

Chalkboard spray paint from Krylon:  $7.99

  • For best adhesion, clean glass
  • Shake, shake, shake the can (after ball inside the can begins to rattle)
  • Apply paint to dry surface in a "sweeping" motion
  • Allow 24 hours before initial use
  • Once dry, break in surface by rubbing full area with side of chalk and then erase entire surface
Guess what I found this morning as I was getting ready for work???

Isn't he sweet?

Here is a distance shot to see where it now resides in our lovely kitchen.  I couldn't be happier with it!!!

 Just a little doodle...

Are there any projects you have done using chalkboard paint?
Happy Decorating!


  1. Hello! I found your project on Pinterest. Did you spray the chalkboard paint directly on the glass, or did you use another surface? Did you use more than one coat? Thanks!

    1. I sprayed directly onto the glass and did two coats. I let it dry and then my husband surprised me by completing it with I believe two more coats. Hope this helps! Thanks for your comment!
