Boring Chalkboard to Va Va Voom Chalkboard DIY Makeover!


I started with the largest plain chalkboard size they had at Hobby Lobby and it was $12.99- a good deal if you ask me!

Then I painted the frame white:
I also purchased 12 wooden circles at Hobby Lobby (2 for $1.00).  I laid them on a trash bag outside and did my favorite thing with them....

SPRAYPAINTED!!!! It took me several coats because I bought the super cheap kind and I definitely should have paid $2 more and gotten the good, Krylon spraypaint...lesson learned

Voila', 12 spraypainted circles....and you're done!

Just kidding.

Next I glued the circles onto the top and bottom of the frame and added my flav-o-favorite...a peacock feather!

Testing, testing, 1-2-3





Yay! Time to make a to-do list...or plan out my menu for the week...or just write "Winning!" really big across the thing.
