There are countless tutorials about refinishing furniture with chalkboard paint splattered (you see what I did there?) all over the internet. I’ve seen all colors and all types of furniture with chalkboard paint. However, I’ve never seen an actual chalkboard done. Chalkboard art has become one of the newest things, but that’s all digital art. I’m redesigning my sunroom and would love to have original pieces in there. Here is my first diy chalkboard sign attempt. I think it came out pretty well! I just need to work on writing a little prettier. Enjoy!
What I Used: 11×14 Picture Frame W/ Glass, Unsanded Grout, Black Acrylic Paint, Chalk, Acrylic Paint Color of Choice
In a small bowl, thoroughly mix ½ cup unsanded grout with ¼ cup black acrylic paint.
Remove the glass from the frame and clean with glass cleaner and allow to dry. Use the sponge brush and long even strokes to paint the glass. Allow the first coat to dry before applying a second coat.
Once the paint is dry, “season” the glass by marking it up with chalk and then using a paper towel to wipe off the chalk. Paint the frame with the other acrylic paint, using light long strokes.
Once all of the paint is dry, place the glass back in the frame and write your favorite quote.
