Mini Chevron Chalkboard and Frame

We love a simple project and this one is just that! My daughter was wanting to spruce up her room a bit, and add some touches of turquoise and chevron. In addition, she is all about chalkboards. So I took her inspiration and created this little Mini Chevron Chalkboard and Frame…

It is the perfect accent for my girl and she loves leaving little messages! These teen years are all about quotes and little inspirational sayings. I also love that we can leave her a quick note if she needs a little affirmation after a hard day. It is like getting a sweet card from a friend.

I love this Peacock Pearl color and the sparkle it has!

I simply followed the directions on the back of the Chalkboard Paint, and painted directly on the part of the picture frame that goes into the back of the frame.

HINT: Don’t forget to season the chalkboard once it is completely dry, like I did on these Chalkboard Paper Tags!

Once you have seasoned the chalkboard, simply place it into the back of the frame and you are done!

My girl loves that she can use this as a chalkboard, or if she decides to put a picture in it instead, she can do that as well. I love that I can check off a project from  my list that she has been asking for! Sweet!
