Transformed Treasures Tuesday no 27

Time for Transformed Treasures Tuesday no 27 I made a new chalkboard well sorta.  Have you seen the new chalk markers that are everywhere.  They are made to write on glass and not a porous surface.  They come in many awesome colors and I just happen to pick up a set.  Well when I reread the box I realized I need a glass chalkboard to use them on.  So let me show you what I did…


Transformed Treasures Tuesday no 27

I came across this old frame at my sisters house.  Laying by her back door so I was like oh what is this for.  She said oh I meant to give it to you to drop off at good will.  Well I brought it home and it sat in my front hall way for quiet the while.  Until last week I came home with my awesome new chalk markers and an idea was born.  I knew I had some black paper in my wrapping paper stash.  And to me just like one + one = two this frame + black paper= a perfect glass chalkboard.


I just ripped open the backing on the frame and wrapped the picture with my awesome glittery black paper.  Then I pulled out my colorful markers and got it ready for V day coming up next month.

What do you think isn’t this an awesome fast way to make your own glass chalkboard?

    I need to get that chalk. I use expo markers on our chore board that is glass frames and we have had a couple incidents with kids writing on the walls and lids being left off. I wonder how the chalk comes off walls.

  6. This is super cool. I love re-using old frames.
