I’ve been wanting a chalkboard to put my “to do” lists on so that I have it right in front of my face. I bought the chalkboard at Hobby Lobby it was just $7.50 (50% off ). Then my grand plan was to put it in a picture frame because I wanted it more “chunky”. Well the chalkboard is 23″x35″ and picture frames are 24″x36″ so the chalkboard was to small to attach to a frame. I went to Home Depot and bought some 1/2″ quarter round trim for about $7 (16 ft.).
I miter cut the 1/2″ quarter round and used my finish nailer and some wood glue to attach the trim to the chalkboard frame.
Then I painted the chalkboard frame and trim a semi-gloss white and used the finish nailer to attach the chalkboard to the rustic wood frame $25 (I bought it at Hobby Lobby, also 50% off ).
So for about $40 I have exactly what I wanted & I love it. Now I just have to add my “to do” list to it, first off will be Spring/Summer 2017!
