Couples' shower | chalkboard decor

Remember the couples' shower we threw forever ago? Well, it's finally time for a bunch of posts and pictures. :)

I bought dollar store picture frames, spray painted the frames and used chalkboard paint on the glass. The instructions clearly say not to use it on glass, but it totally worked. I painted a few coats of mod podge on the glass first to give it a little texture and then used the brown chalkboard paint.

The first chalkboard frame was hanging by the front door to greet the guests...

I wrote on it to match the invitations. Here's a closer look...

Another chalkboard frame was in the backyard on the food table...

Keep an eye out for more chalkboard decor in the next posts. :)


  1. I love the idea of chalkboard paint. What a cool idea to use it as a decorative party element in the frames. It would be so much fun to play with in a kid's room.

  2. It was the first time I've used chalkboard paint and now I'm kind of obsessed with it. :)
