Another Magnetic Chalkboard

Don't ever throw away a frame or even an old mirror.  This was a mirror to an old dresser that wasn't getting used, and you know I can't turn down turning anything into a chalkboard, and magnetic too!  Thanks to my hubby for doing all the labor prep work, sand, prime and paint.  Then we got a piece of sheet metal cut to size. Primed the sheet metal then rolled on some good ole chalkboard paint. I may still distress it a bit to give it more of a shabby chic look and it will hang in the basement family room. Everyone loves them for doodling on and even writing a few love notes here and there.  I'm Thinking about selling a few of these on Craigs list so stay tuned.


  1. I'm seeing a cute little banner hanging from it also.

  2. Looks great! Always amazes me how a few coats of paint will just transform something!
