One of my favorite parts of my office makeover was the chalkboard we created for my windowsill. Ryan Taylor had this frame, which he’d used for numerous parties and home decor projects. I love that this frame had a life before it settled in my office!
We wanted to strip the color from the frame and show that natural wood.
Ryan applied wood stripper to strip it down. I’d never used wood stripper before so I held the frame while Ryan used his elbow grease. After applying the liquid, he used a scraper and a rough brush to remove the layers of paint.
We then applied two coats of chalkboard paint and let it try before inserting it into the frame.
Chalkboard paint is so versatile and is now available in different colors. I love mine, but I am concerned about its “erasability.” Can anyone encourage me to erase it and start fresh with a new quote?
