I decided to use an old framed picture (that was super dated) and turn it into a chalkboard. I painted the frame with a couple of coats of a creamy white homemade chalk paint. I let that dry well and used a flat edge razor blade to scrape the paint off of the glass……this works famously. During the process…..
In one full day, I painted 3 coats of Rustoleum, black chalkboard paint. This paint claims to stick to any surface, so I rolled it right onto the glass with a small foam roller (and cut in the edges with a little square foam brush). You need to let each coat dry for several hours. I let that completely cure overnight.
Then, I used 2 different shades of glaze and some sand paper to bring out some of the dimensions in the framing. The chalkboard paint has to cure for 3 days until you can use it. It sits on the perfect wall in between our kitchen and dining room. Final product……..
