We love the idea of making a DIY chalkboard out of a vintage frame. But Jessica turns that idea inside out in her office, hanging empty frames to organize the chalkboard wall behind her desk...
This incredibly simple project transforms the chalkboard wall into a space that serves your practical needs as well as your creative muse. Use the space outside the frames for doodling, spontaneous poetry, or what have you… and employ the framed portions for more mundane tasks, like calendar-keeping, as Jessica does.
Nice empty frames are easy to find at flea markets and thrift stores. For a wide selection of empties, including frames with a sleeker, more contemporary aesthetic, try Cheap Pete's, which has several Bay Area locations.
