apt diy: chalkboard

Pinterest taught me that I can pretty much turn anything into a chalkboard. So I thought I would jump on board and make a chalkboard for my new apartment. I wanted something large, but didn't want to pay for a huge frame or mirror. Instead, I purchased a 27"x40" poster frame from Michaels for 40% off. It's a cheap frame, but it worked perfectly for this idea. After removing the frame sides, I used some black chalkboard spray paint to coat the plastic covering that came in the poster frame. To finish the project, I followed the suggested drying time and instructions on the back of the spray paint can. It's as simple as that! Now we have a cute chalkboard hanging in our apartment :)
