You may remember seeing this framed chalkboard show up as a prop in posts from time to time. I made it over a year ago using a thrift store frame that I painted teal and filling the space with a chalkboard paint covered piece of foam board. At the time I used the foam board because it was handy and fast and did the job in making this prop for a shoot. Now months later, I am realizing how handy the chalkboard and pin board combo can be. My new friend and neighbor Gracie agreed! We used the chalkboard to shoot her first-day-back-to-school photo and then had fun decorating it how she might use it for her bedroom. If you do not have a framed chalkboard yet, give this version a try. The good thing is you can always replace the foam board then ever you need. You can see where this chalkboard pin board is used in my studio in the photos below. Enjoy! Lia
