{ DIY Farmhouse Fall Living Room Chalkboard Makeover }

Hey guys!! Thanks for dropping back in for another fun little post with me haha!I hope you all had a lovely weekend. We didn't do anything too exciting other than look at a few properties & took a nice country drive, and finished the night off with the some Chinese takeout..Sometimes it's the simple weekends that are the best right?! So, I mentioned a few weeks ago that while I was cruising home one morning after grocery shopping I spotted a huge chalkboard in the trash & of course whipped the Jeep around & shoved it in my backseat! When I got home I knew I wanted to paint over the gold frame & give the chalkboard part a fresh coat of paint. I decided since I haven't use the Rust-Oleum chalk paint spray paint I wanted to dry that & I decided to pick up their chalkboard paint too { I actually prefer Devine Color by Valspar from Target }. I loved that the chalkboard was already framed out & the size was perfect for what & where I was going to put it! I kind of had a plan as what I wanted our fall living room to entail { separate post coming soon} & the chalkboard fit perfectly into that vision! Enough of me rambling, come see the finish look below & a sneak peek of our fall living room!  


  • Chalk Paint { I used Linen White }
  • Chalkboard Paint
  • Old Towel
  • Chalk { to season }
  • Paint brush

I just placed the towel inside of the frame basically...I knew I was freshening up the black so it didn't matter too much at this point!

Side Note: The chalk paint was nice. It went on evenly & dried super quick with that thick chalky finish! I did distress mine with a bit of dark wax after!

I used about 3 coats of chalkboard paint. I then seasoned it with chalk & wiped cleaned with a damp rag!


The size, color & simple detail are just what I was envisioning & for under $20 for this makeover!! I'll be sharing more details on this space for fall super soon etc.. It's changed quite a bit since our summer living room HERE 
I'm loving the new slipcover, dark tones, new furniture piece HERE & how simplified & darker things are..Can you tell I'm ready for fall.
