Craftin' Time!

I bought a can of chalkboard paint a long time ago and have been trying to find ways to use it.  This, my blog friends, is one of those ways.  Super easy and cheap.  I bought a picture from the dollar store, which I use to have hanging up but decided it would make a much better chalk board than cheesy wall art.  I simply removed the paper from the wood so that way the paint would bond. I painted a few coats and that was it!  Cute and nifty right?

Oh my gosh it came out great and it seems like it would be really useful.

Great idea! I am actually working on a DIY right now. I want to do a half chalkboard, half cork board. Just need to buy the chalkboard paint. I want to paint some squares in my kid's room as well so my son has somewhere to scribble. :)
