Mirror Turned Into A Chalkboard

Good evening!  Hope your enjoying your weekend so far.....We're enjoying a heat wave around these parts!  One last hurrah for the pool!!  I found this mirror at a garage sale while up at my parent's camp.  I think I only paid a dollar for it...due to a stain on it, although you can't tell in the picture.  I attempted many times to remove it...but it wouldn't budge.  I decided that it might be cute as a chalkboard since the mirror portion of was in mediocre condition.


I primed the mirror with some Kilz and then painted two coats of chalkboard paint onto it.  Here she is after her make-over.


This was a quick and easy fix....the best kind, right??
Thanks for reading!!

  11. Glad to know this works! I was wondering if the paint would scratch right off if I used a mirror, but I didn't think to use kilz. Thanks for the great idea! visting from A Diamond in the Stuff.

  14. Thanks for this! My husband and I wanted to transform a mirror into a chalkboard a few days ago, but we weren't sure if glass works well as a chalkboard base. This answers that question. :)
