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. 

I am also including my Amazon Affiliate links in yellow so you can find the products I used for my project. There is no additional cost to you, just click on the bold yellow words to take you to the links. 

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!
