Chalkboard Wall Frame

Mexican Kitchen Redo:
Chalkboard Wall Frame

I just moved, so I am decorating my kitchen with a Mexican theme, since that is my favorite kind of food. The first addition is this Chalkboard Wall Frame that I have always wanted to do. I actually painted the wall for this. I thought that if I were to write on the frame itself then it would wobble, and since I wanted to use this Chalkboard every day I wanted it to be sturdy.

   All you need is Chalkboard paint( I bought the paint at Walmart), a frame and painting tape( I used masking tape). Oh, and chalk to write on your new board. First take a painted frame and decide where you want it. Mine is in the entry to my kitchen.

 Trace and tape where you want to paint.
 Start painting the wall. It took me a few coats.
And there you go. You can even change the frame as often as you want.

I wouldn't have thought to paint right on the wall-what a great idea! I love that you can change out the frame.
Thanks for the inspiration,
