Mirror turned chalkboard

Isn't this mirror SO cute?  It came with a dresser that I bought Rylie for her room....but she already had a big shabby mirror that I liked better, so this one sat in the garage for about a year!  Then I ran across something TOTALLY awesome on Pinterest...

Did you KNOW you can paint over a mirror with chalkboard paint?  OH yes you can!  :)  I bought a can of chalkboard spray paint from Lowe's and sprayed three light coats on the mirror, then painted the frame black.  You can't tell from the picture, but I lightly dry painted red over it so it looks a bit distressed!  What a cheap way to make your own chalkboards!

And as an FYI....FORGET the chalk!  It's messy and leaves all the chalk dust when you erase it!  Buy these....Chalk Ink Markers (Brian got me these last Christmas off Amazon!  Here's the link -- TOTALLY worth the money!  You will NOT be disappointed with these).  LOVE them!!!  No mess at all!  And when you want to change up your chalk board, just use a wet paper towel to wipe it off and have a go at it again! 

Makes ya wanna make a chalk board RIGHT now, doesn't it?  :)
