I love chalkboards, not the green ones, but the old school black ones. I’ve seen many chalkboards popping up that are old frames, etc., that have been turned into chalkboards, so I decided to give it a try.  My mom had a few large old frames that she had oil paintings in and I asked her to save them. I saw a Tut online for doing a magnetic chalkboard and thought it would make a great way to display the magnets I create. Magnetic chalkboard it is!

I didn’t want to use magnetic paint but instead wanted metal as a backer, mainly because it gives a stronger magnetic surface for magnets to stick to.

I found this Tut:

Here is the frame before I started, I will post pics as I go:
