I saw this really cute anniversary tradition on Pinterest, where the couple takes a photo holding up a chalkboard sign indicating how many years it’s been since they’ve been married. I thought this was SO cute and knew my husband and I had to do it!
I could have just bought a little chalkboard, but instead I wanted to make one. I bought a frame from the dollar store and had the chalkboard spray paint already so it was a really inexpensive project. Here’s my plain jane photo frame (ha, that rhymes!)
I started by taking the glass out and spraying it with my handy dandy chalkboard paint. I start off by spraying very, very lightly, and drying in between coats until you can’t see through it. It dries reeeeally fast. This process probably only took about 5 minutes.
Because I didn’t love the black on black look, I brushed some blue paint on very lightly. I used a foam brush, and dipped it into the paint, brushing any excess off on a paper plate just so it wouldn’t glob on the wood. I wanted the black to show through.
