Select an old picture frame in your desired size. Ensure the back of the frame is wide enough to be glued securely to the backing board.
Optional: Sand down the frame with our Mouse® Detail Sander to create your own finish. Leave raw for a rustic look, add a wood stain, or paint to complement your decor.
Cut the backing board to fit the frame. For ease, draw around the frame in pencil on the backing board as a template.
If your frame has a recessed area that held the mount and glass, you can cut the board to fit inside for a flusher look. Ensure the lip of the frame is wide enough for the glue to hold the board in place.
Paint the backing board with chalkboard paint and leave to dry.
Glue the frame to the backing board using a suitable wood glue, then clamp together until set. If you don't have clamps, weigh down with books or other heavy objects.
Screw in any attachments of your choice. We added a rail, but you could add hooks or other attachments depending on what you fancy.
Add a suitable hanging fixture to the back of the frame, such as a brass wire or D-ring bracket, ensuring it is securely attached.
