DIY Chalkboards in Beautiful Frames6:00:00 AM
If you love making chalkboards like I do you're
going to love these helpful hints...
I make loads of framed chalkboards for my shop and for
craft fairs. Today I'm going to share a few hints.
First of all I want to tell you about pre-made chalkboard.
If you've been painting boards with chalkboard paint for framing like I was, this is the easy way...
I buy large sheets of pre-made chalkboard from Home Depot.
It is inexpensive and perfect for
cutting to size and dropping into beautiful frames.
You can see how I made it into chalkboards here.
Secondly, I want to tell you about one of the
most fabulous tools I own... The kerchunker as
it's been called. It is actually called a framing gun
and it has made my DIY life so much easier!
The framing gun is a tool that shoots little flat nails
into the frame holding the chalkboard in...
no more nailing little nails into the side of the frame!
You just hold the framing gun up to the inside
of the frame and shoot!
Making chalkboards used to take me hours...
painting the boards, hammering in nails...
The pre-made chalkboard and the kerchunker now let me
concentrate on painting beautiful frames. I get so many framed
chalkboards finished in 1/2 the time.
Which leaves me time to make something else!
Just thought you should know!
These beautiful framed chalkboards will be coming
with me to the craft fair at my local Library.
