I've been wanting a gigantic chalkboard to hang in my house for a while but they're expensive — or they were, until I realized just how easy it would be to make my own inexpensive version. I picked up a canvas at an art shop, a can of spray paint, and got busy! I tend to change things in my house pretty often, and since this chalkboard is lightweight, it's easy for me to move around or change the drawing.
