I put thin wood in the frame and painted the wood. As a tip— the spraypaint goes on a lot nicer than the stuff you apply with a roller.

I bought a plaque from the dollar store and just used blackboard spray paint I bought at Michaels (don’t forget the 40% off coupon). A few coats and it was good to go. I wouldn’t use plain paper as it’s too flimsy, I would use plywood cut to size, or maybe even foamcore would work (you can buy sheets of it at the dollar store, worth a try!).

After you get your final coat on, let it cure for 24 hours and then prime the board by covering the whole thing with chalk and wiping it all off, THEN you can write on whatever you’re doing 🙂
