I wanted a blackboard for my kitchen but instead of buying one, I decided to make one. I still had the cupboard doors I removed from my Turquoise Dresser so I decided to use one of those, along with the blackboard paint at the back of my craft stash...
Coloured Paint (that's suitable for furniture painting)
Coordinating (and pretty) Pushpins
Firstly, take any metalwork on the cupboard door off, then sand the whole thing down
Wipe down the door to remove all the dust and grease
Once the blackboard paint has dried completely, cover it (with card or paper) to keep it protected
Paint the frame with the coloured paint, it will probably need at least 2 coats
Put pins along the bottom and right side of the frame, leaving even spaces between them
