Two Faced Chalkboard Frame

I love this frame! It is so great because when you want to change it you don't have to erase it and then write, you can just flip it around! These are so easy and fun to do!

What you need:

Chalkboard Spray Paint (you could use regular paint and just use a brush, but it is easier to get it smooth when using spray paint)

IKEA Tolsby frame (which are only a $1!)

Spray paint (color of your choice)

Not pictured: Newspaper

Unwrap the frame and set aside.

Peel the plastic covering off the "glass" and set both of them down on newspaper.

Lay the 2 part frame on newspaper as well.

Spray a thin coat of chalkboard paint on the "glass". It should dry in about 5-8 mins because it is so thin.

Do the same with the frame.

I did a coat, let dry for a few minutes and then did another coat. In the end I did about 4 coats and them let it dry for a hour or so before assembling and using it.

Done! So simple and cheap, I paid about 8 dollars total!

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and have a great day!!
