Mother's Day Project

Each year I have a hard time figuring out what to give my mom for Mother's Day. I got a great idea to make something fun for my mom. So, I headed to IKEA with my friend Sarah, her two girls and my two boys (which was an adventure in itself.) I found a cute white picture frame. I thought it would be super fun to make it into a chalkboard for my mom's kitchen. Here is the play by play...

1) Take apart picture frame

2) Use the backboard and paint chalkboard paint (I used 3 coats)

3) Put the picture frame back together placing the glass piece in the back and the chalkboard piece in the front.

I still need to attach a super cute ribbon to the back so that she can hang it in her kitchen. 

Super easy and fun:)
