Chalk Board Material

So I had someone ask about the material Blue Eyed Husband used for the actual board of the chalk board. Well we had some MDF, that we had picked up at Home Depot a few months ago. He used the back of the frame to measure the correct size, cut, and it fit perfectly.


He also used spray chalk board paint. It seems to be much easier. Personal preference I guess. You can find that at Home Depot also,

Remember, I picked this frame up at Goodwill for $5.00 ? I think.

I'm pretty happy with how it came out


Picked up chalk from Wal-Mart this morning. Wait till you see what else.
I'm on my way to the Salvation Army. It was closed the other day because of the storm. IMAGINE THAT!!! Goodwill had no power. What is this world coming too.

Love the chalk board. What a clever idea.

Good luck on your shopping spree. My favorite store is our Hospice Thrift Store, always something new and different from new to used.

I'll be looking around my house tonight checking for a place for a chalk board.

Many Blessings

I would recommend the spray chalk board paint as well. I used that for mine and it turned out great. We used the brush on for my sisters and ended up with roller marks. Not so great.

I can't wait to see what great things you found on your shopping trip today!
