DIY Kitchen Chalkboard

I've been dreaming of a chalkboard for the kitchen for a while now and this past weekend the project finally came together.

My step-dad found me this super cool old frame and cut a nice smooth piece of pine to fit.

I transformed both with the help of a small container of chalkboard paint and a bottle of cheap-o white spray paint that I picked up at my local Home Depot.

Use a roller to get a nice smooth finish on the chalkboard paint. The entire painting process took less than 45 minutes from start to finish. The hard part was leaving it alone until the paint was dry.
And, voilà, kitchen chalkboard! Now, comes the hard part.....hanging it up on a plaster wall.....
