Picture of Framed Chalkboard
It's handy to have a large To Do list somewhere in your place. Even nicer is a big chalkboard you can write on that's easy to read. This project covers how to make a classier chalkboard out of a picture frame, some scrap plywood, and chalkboard spray paint.

some dark primer on the ply might save some time and money on multitudinous coats of blackboard paint. Still, use more paint than you think you have to, as successive cleanings will remove a bit each time.

Maybe, but I don't think it's significant. I've used 2-3 coats on surfaces that have held up for a long time.
On the hunt for an old mirror just for the frame! I've got a recipe for homemade chalkboard paint that I think I'll use for this..

Phew! I knew I'd not be able to make a frame like that, so this is definitely a project for me! Awesome, thanks.
