Upcycled Chalkboard

I found a framed restaurant brunch menu at an antique store and decided that it would make an awesome chalkboard. In addition to a reflective background, the frame also has very useful hooks and a sheet of metal sitting behind the glass part (making the surface magnetic as well). I picked up a can of Rustoleum spray chalkboard paint for less than 6 bucks at the hardware store and gave the sheet of metal a couple of coats. You can use this idea for various types of material, making any surface a chalkboard. 


  1. Bianca - These are awesome. I wish you lived closer so I could buy your stuff.

  2. I asked Jamie about the old blog...and what happened, and he redirected me. Love the goods! Teach me to crochet please! :) Laura
