Five Ways to Upcycle Old Stuff with Chalkboard Paint

chalkboard picture frameSince I replaced all my old picture frames recently, I am thrilled by this project from b*spoke, which uses chalkboard paint to turn an old picture frame, glass and all, into a chalkboard message board.

There’s absolutely no waste with this project–you can even leave your crappy art underneath the glass if you don’t want it anymore–and since the frame stays intact, it’s easy to hang it right back up to start its new life.

I'm a writer, crafter, Zombie Preparedness Planner, and homeschooling momma of two kids who will hopefully someday transition into using their genius for good, not the evil machinations and mess-making in which they currently indulge. I'm interested in recycling and nature crafts, food security, STEM education, and the DIY lifestyle, however it's manifested--making myself some underwear out of T-shirts? Done it. Teaching myself guitar? Doing it right now.
