Easy Frame Chalkboard DIY

Remember this chalkboard sign from the Ice Cream Soda bar I created for Celebrations website? It was such a popular focal point I thought I’d share with you how I made it. It was quite simple to do…

The piece is actually a mirror I had hanging in my daughter’s room.

  • 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.

      Hi Holly. Yes, that’s correct – just wipe clean with a slightly damp cloth and it’s ready to go!
