Last summer I shared a DIY chalkboard that I created from a thrift store frame and piece of hardboard. I liked that project, but the chalkboard was a bit small for the wall I wanted it for so I’ve been on the lookout for a larger frame. I found the perfect frame at a thrift store: It was the size I was looking for, inexpensive, and didn’t even need painting!
This past weekend my family went to the Utah Foster Care Foundation’s 10th Annual Chalk Art Festival. During the two day festival artists create works of art on the sidewalk. The festival raises funds to benefit Utah’s foster families. Here are a couple of photos that I took of the sidewalk art at the festival:

Pretty cool huh? To continue on the chalk theme, today I’ll show you how I made a framed chalkboard using an inexpensive thrift store frame and paint.
