DIY Framed Chalkboard Tutorial

Easy DIY Framed Chalkboard! My baby has a play area upstairs and one downstairs. Originally I wanted to do a chalkboard wall in the upstairs loft area. I thought it'd be super fun, but my husband quickly nixed that idea (In the end I'm glad he did). So we ended up compromising on a big framed chalkboard. Couldn't be happier with the end result!

You Will Need...

  • Chalkboard Paint
  • Smooth Board
  • Paint (Spray Paint and Latex Paint)
  • Fussy Molding
  • Power Drill
  • Screws
  • Paintable Caulking
  • Paint Roller (for Chalkboard)
  • Miter Saw (For Frame)
  • Clamps
Just a Tip!
