If you missed the first part of creating our chalkboard frame, click here. You can see where we picked up by simply painting the pressed board (what the print was adhered to) with 2 coats of chalkboard paint. Make sure to let it dry completely before putting this piece back in the frame to avoid scratches.
Now the fun part…where to use this? A few ideas: in the kitchen with the day’s menu, or a welcome sign for company out on the porch. A friend does this beautifully with a display board and it is warm and inviting. I was inspired by a book we are reading, Having A Mary Heart In A Martha World by Joanna Weaver, to create a quiet space for prayer. Here is my interpretation using a quiet bedroom corner I included this with a few frames holding old calendar prints to help me focus.
I set it up right next to my “chair”. I bought it used from a friend over a decade ago, and it has travelled many places with us. This is my go to place. Scripture can be changed frequently to draw my eye upward. This chalkboard has now become an important focal point, it has purpose.
