I thought she’d make a cute chalkboard for my kitchen. I’ve been wanting a chalkboard in my kitchen for awhile now, and I finally had some time to knock this project out. If you’ve never turned a mirror or picture frame into a chalkboard, here is a quick tutorial:
1. Wipe your mirror with a clean, dry cloth. Don’t use Windex or anything that might affect the paint that you’re about to put on it.
2. Prime the entire mirror and frame with primer. I used a paint brush and latex primer. It would be easier to use spray paint, but since it’s not really spray paintin’ weather, I had to brush it out.
3. Choose a color for your frame (I chose my go-to Heirloom White) and paint the frame. Tape it off and paint the mirror surface with chalkboard paint. (I used Rust Oleum’s Chalkboard Paint in Black Finish).
