Oh, So Crafty: Framed Chalkboard

Went with Reduce Reuse Recycle on this Van Gogh Turned Chalkboard (Sorry Vincent) 

I got this fancy shmancy plastic gold framed Van Gogh, Cafe Terrace at Night print when I was in high school for $10. I'm not sure why I kept it all these years, but sure glad I did! The print was mounted to particle board & popped in the back of this frame. Like any good DIY'er, I knew this had another life in it!

After a light sanding to the back of the particle board, I coated it with Krylon spray primer, then 3 coats of Rust-Oleum Chalk Board spray paint.
Buy the $4.98 Chalk Board paint here The Home Depot.

I primed the surface by rolling chalk across the entire surface & wiping it clean with a dry cloth.

It's hanging in my kitchen, & I just adore it! My goal is to use this to help me stay on top of weekday meal planning, & to highlight a weekly Bible verse.

I am slightly intimidated by spray paint, but was pretty stoked about my finished product. I may give spray paint another go.
