The mirror is held in place on the frame with some simple bendable hooks which I pried open with my hands – no special tool required.
I removed the mirror and kept the cardboard backing to be spray painted on one side with chalkboard paint. I let it dry over night.
I replaced the cardboard backing and secured with the bendable hooks, and waalaa! A fabulous framed chalkboard with different sections for different uses!
The great thing is that I can always replace the mirror as needed so it’s like having 2 pieces in 1. Check around your local stores or thrift shops for something similar you can do this with. It will add character to any space.
