Repurposed Rustic Chalkboard Display


I'm repurposing an old frame today and creating a display for a few of my favorite things.

I began with an old picture from the thrift store. 

This project is similar to the Large Framed Wreath Art I did recently. 

The backing of this frame easily popped out.

I coated the backing with a couple coats of Fusion Mineral Paint in Coal Black.

When the paint dried I returned the backing into the frame and nailed an antique nail into the board.

If your board is thin you can secure the nail that pokes through the back with a screw nut and E6000 glue.

I attached the board back into the frame using a point driver. This tool is one of my favorites and totally worth the investment! 

This framed chalkboard can be used to display a few of your favorite things. 

I'm having fun with editing effects on these photos but
you can have fun displaying anything you love just by hanging it from the nail!
