How To Make The Easiest Chalkboard & Stag Silhouette

Happy Monday!

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend!

Today is officially the last day of summer for me, as my boys head back to school tomorrow.


I know they are ready, just not sure I am:).

The nice thing about school beginning is we get back to a routine again

& that I am ready for!

How about you?

Do you get excited by the thought of routine once more?

So in the spirit of habit & schedules,

 I have planned lots of amazing projects to come!

We all LOVE chalkboards,

am I right?

Would you like to know an easy way to make one?

Do you have any old picture frames with glass, old windows or doors?

Yup, you can paint glass.

It is really that simple.

2. Tape up and roll on your chalk paint.

My favorite is Benjamin Moore’s Chalkboard Paint.

 Let dry in between each coat.

I do 3-4 coats.

3. Peel tape off using an exacto knife so it doesn’t peel the paint.

4. Condition the board.

Cover the entire board in chalk, then wipe off gently with a dry rag.

5. Draw & cut out your stag silhouette onto oak tag.

Center, trace and fill in center.

6. Take an oval template, I used a serving tray and trace around.


Total price for this makeover-$5.00.

    1. Hi Paula,
      Try the BM paint maybe and make sure you let try in between each coat.
      I hope that helps,

  1. I may be too busy to leave a comment all the time, but I read your blog religiously. I’ve been moving and your chalkboard instructions came at just the right time for me to have a new project. While I’m not going to do a stag, the tutorial gave me all the information to do my own thing. Thanks for everything and for sharing.

    1. Thank you for your thoughtful comment, I love that it inspired you and that you read my blog, this is why I share what I share:). You made my day! Jen

  2. I have a bunch of doors from old cupboards that we tossed away and have been trying to think how to recycle the doors….this would work, as I could chalk paint the raised center part of the door, leaving the outside trim as the ‘frame’…..hmmm, this could work! Thanks for the inspiration!

      1. Pic Monkey looks great. What lettering style did you use? How did you do the blocks around the squares. I love it which we had a download for it.
