If you can find a similar frame you can use chalkboard paint to make the chalkboard!

@HappilyEverAfter54: My mom has painted in on the glass of a frame and as far as I remember we had no problems with it!

I went to garage sales, bought hideous old pictures, and then painted the chalk-board paint over them, and spray painted the frames. Worked like a charm!

I have made a massive chalkboard out of a 5×10 foot piece of plywood and used the paint on glass and dry erase boards. The key is to prime the surface and do at least two coats of the chalkboard paint.

I would definitely DIY it, I have seen it done with the spray paint and regular paint. Don’t forget to prime the paint once its dry!

I use the actual paint. I have a hard time making the spray paint go on even.

They also have chalkboard stick- on paper now.

You can also buy a plain chalkboard with no frame, and make your own frame with mitred molding.

I vote for the DIY route that all the ladies posted. I made this one below using the spray paint, but I think the non-spray would be easier to work with. I couldn’t find a darn chalk board to save my life and was so ticked! But very easy to DIY!
