Make your own chalk board



This is so easy to do and looks incredible in a playroom or bedroom.

What you will need:

A large, old mirror or picture frame

Blackboard Paint

White Undercoat or Primer Paint

Paint Brush


How to make:

  1. Clean your old mirror or picture frame and allow to dry.
  2. Paint your white undercoat onto the area inside the frame you wish to be the blackboard.
  3. Allow to dry.
  4. Paint your black chalk paint over the White.
  5. Allow to dry.
  6. Apply a second coat of black chalk paint if you think it needs it.
  7. Allow to dry for at least 12 hours.
  8. Hang low and securely on a wall or simply lean it against the wall at your child’s height.
  9. Now create wonderful pictures with your chalk.
  10. Also, why not try using coloured chalk or chalk pens that easily wash off. You can also buy thick chunks of chalk that younger children will find easier to use.


  1. Find cheap paint on amazon
  2. Hunt cheap Picture frames at the car boot if you don’t have any old ones lying around.
