DECOR DIY: Chalkboard Paint Frame

I know I promised a feather post this week but that will have to wait because I’ve discovered Krylon’s CHALKBOARD SPRAY PAINT! Ok full disclosure, I’ve owned this frame for over 5 years. I picked it up from Ikea when I first moved to LA and it’s been in my closet ever since. I finally hung it on the wall about a month ago, but never did anything special to it. Yes, it’s been hanging on my wall with all the Ikea paperwork still in it. My parents were in town last week and my Mom WOULD NOT LET IT GO! Every time she entered my apartment the first words out of her mouth were, “When are you going to do something with that thing?” So here you go Mom…I finally did something with it!

The products produced by Krylon have changed my life. We all know I’m obsessed with their neon spray paints, right? Well now you can add their chalkboard paint to the list. It’s so easy to use. Simply clean off the surface you want to be chalkboarded (<- new word!), shake the can and spray!

Seriously this product is beyond amazing. It goes on smooth and is dry to the touch in about 30 minutes. However, I’d give it a full 24 hours to dry before you start chalking.

This $8 can of chalkboard paint has changed the entire look of my entry way. Now before I leave my house I’m hit with a little inspiration that carries me on my way. There are so many things you could do with a can of Krylon’s chalkboard spray paint. I went a little crazy yesterday on Pinterest pinning some inspirations.

Remember my loves to ALWAYS dream big! xoxo

    love the chalkboard, I’ve been thinking about doing one myself, did you just use the glass insert to spray paint or did you use something else
