I want to share with you an easy way to make a large chalkboard. First of all, I adore how versatile chalkboards are and how they can make your room feel catered to any event or regular living. We made our chalkboard before Christmas and used it above our mantel.
Then, I put this up for New Year's:
I discovered at Home Depot they make pre-cut chalkboards that are only $10 and ready to frame. My husband made a simple frame using 1" x 4" pine boards and cut 45-degree angles with a miter saw. Once the boards were cut we adhered them to the chalkboard using liquid nails. We clamped the boards overnight. After everything is adhered then you can paint or stain the boards.
1" x 4" pine ($20)
Liquid nails ($4)
Clamps (You'll use this to hold down the glue overnight)
Pre-cut chalkboard at Home Depot ($10)
stain or paint frame (I used a walnut stain that I sanded down)
