Chalk Paint Chalkboard

When people hear of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, they think chalkboard paint.  And while that is not what it is, 2 or 3 coats of unwaxed chalk paint can be used as a chalkboard paint.
 For this chalkboard I painted right over the picture with coco, and used old white on the frame.
After a light sanding, I waxed the frame part.  It is fun to have an easy way to make different color chalkboards.


  1. Great Job, I love using Annie Sloan Paint. Enjoy your blog.

  2. I make chalkboards from old mirrors and pictures as well. I just started using Annie Sloan paints and I wondered if you could use them for chalkboards as well. Thanks for sharing this, I am eager to try some new colours of chalkboards. hugs Tobey
