Chalk board Ikea hack
Very cool, easy, cheap, pretty Ikea hack.
See the complete and simple how-to post on ikea hacker here.
See the actual frame from Ikea here.
Basically you buy a nice pretty frame -like this one from Ikea, pop out the glass, paint the frame with nice white acrylic paint and then paint the right side of the glass with a glass primer and then chalk paint (both come in spray paint options). Voila -pretty, cheap and functional. I like it!
