I love this pretty DIY by Aimee of Song of Style. She found her frame at the Fairfax Flea Market, but I'm sure there are fancy frames in need of some DIY love everywhere. Perhaps you have a gilded gold frame that could use a coat of white paint and some chalkboard paint?
It's really quite simple as far as diys are concerned! A few strokes of chalkboard paint and you're set!
If your frame has a board backing then all you have to do is sand it smooth, apply primer, and coat with chalkboard paint. Wait 3 days before writing on it with chalk. Done!
However if your frame has no board backing, you'll need to buy a thin board (like particle board) and saw it to the right size and shape. Then prime & paint!
