So here is my first prop....
Haha, I know huh? But just wait as I magically turn this $1 frame from the Dollar Tree into a chalkboard.
I already had pink paint and chalkboard paint by Folk Art.
You can also buy the spray paint by Rustoleum . Its so much easier and it applies so smooth and more evenly.
Ok, so step one...
paint the glass with the chalk board paint.
paint the frame
If you buy a plastic frame like I did, it will take about 3 coats.
Step 3 apply another coat (after the first coat has dried) to the chalkboard.
Then after it is all dried, put the glass back into the frame and put the cardboard backer back on as well, and waa-laa you have yourself a chalkboard. I'll post some pics of it when I do my photo shoot.
Apparently I should have the mom write the I'm 1, lol.
Thanks for tuning in, stay tuned for some more DIY photoprops this week :)
