Find that perfect vintage frame. Resale shops have the best selections! Thats where I get all of mine!

Purchase some blackboard contact paper with a sticky back.

Now comes the tricky part. Very carefully (with the back of the chalkboard paper removed) stick the contact paper onto the glass frame.


Using your fingertip slowly swipe back and forth to create a smooth surface.  Sticking it on without swiping back and forth will cause bumps and bubbles.


Fold the corners over and stick on the back! There you have it! How easy was that? And you didn’t have to deal with the mess of chalkboard paint.
