Happy Wednesday, Friends! A few months ago, while shopping for a friend who wanted to add some cozy touches to her living room apartment, I came across this fun faux chalkboard at Pier One. I was inspired to create my own version and I knew I could beat their $50 price tag!
I found this fabulous frame at a thrift store for $2! I started by painting it with chalk paint. The chalkboard decals were Target clearance; several were in the package for less than $2. I decided to use cardboard for the faux chalkboard--I just painted it with chalkboard paint. Once it was dried, I added the decal.
Take a peek at my inspiration next to the finished project. I like my price better--don't you?
If you prefer an actual chalkboard, here's another upcycle using chalk fabric, cardboard and a thrift store frame. See more here.
Hope you are inspired to create something thrifty :)
