Learn how to make a framed chalkboard from an old or thrifted picture frame to add warmth, charm and functionality to your home.
When I was a little girl, I used to play school with my sister. At one point in our childhood, we even had a chalkboard – with real chalk nonetheless!
You know, it’s such a shame that chalkboards have been replaced in most of our schools with whiteboards. I mean, I understand why, but chalkboards hold such a nostalgic place. Plus, chalkboards and schools just seem to go together, right?
Fortunately, chalkboards and chalkboard paint has resurfaced in homes, home décor, stores and craft rooms all across America. In fact, if you look on Pinterest or Etsy, you’ll find all sorts of chalkboard inspiration!
