Chalkboard Wall Decor Knock Off

I saw this piece of wall decor at a store awhile back and thought it would be great for a kitchen.  It was $20, and I remember thinking that I could make it for less.



So when I saw this at Goodwill for $3.99, I thought it would make a perfect chalkboard.



I bought some chalkboard paint from JoAnn's (with a coupon it was less than $5) .....




.....and began painting.




Once the paint dried,  I looked at the picture from the store, and using a piece of chalk I began writing the "recipe for success".




My version cost less $10, and I think it looks all right:)

  3. Okay, so I have the exact same frame thing from the thrift store but mine looks like there was a piece that should've slid in between the frame and the backboard. I've held off on painting it because I don't know how to fill the space without finding something to put in there. Was yours like that too? Love the saying by the way.

  9. Great decor and for only half the price. I guess I'll have to add chalkboard paint to my never-ending list of materials I want to try.

    I found your blog through Inspiration Friday.
