Paint a mirror frame with chalkboard paint. What a cool idea! Paint a dresser to match and then lean the mirror against the wall on top of the dresser to make the set look like one piece. The height of the mirror will draw the eye toward the ceiling making your room appear larger. Designer's Tip: Prime the dresser with magnetic paint if you want to attach permission slips, tickets, or other loose paper. Paint over the magnetic paint with two coats of chalkboard paint to finish.
