Upcycled Skillet Chalkboard – Old skillet chalkboard

Final 2


Upcycled Skillet Chalkboard:-)

I had a couple of frying pans/skillets that had gone bad that I didn’t want to throw away. I was thinking of making something useful/a DIY project to put them to good use.

Voilà!!! Here it is….upcycled skillet chalkboard using an old skillet.

It is a very simple but amazing project (Good job to me ;-)). I just followed the instructions on the chalkboard paint bottle.

Materials Required

  • Old skillet/frying pan – 1 (any size)
  • Chalkboard paint – 1 bottle (any brand – I used “Color factory – Chalkboard paint”)
  • Satin Ribbon(optional) –1 meter (Any ribbon works fine)


STEP 1: Wash the skillet, wipe clean and dry.

STEP 2: Apply a coat of chalkboard paint and wait for a couple of hours before applying the second coat. Please follow the instructions on the paint bottle.

 STEP 3: Apply a second coat of chalkboard paint and let it dry completely. I let it dry for 24 hours.

STEP 4: I applied the third quote as I felt like 2 coats of paint was not sufficient and was worried the paint would peel off. But this is totally optional. Let the third coat dry for 24 hours.

STEP 5: Tie a ribbon making a bow on the handle of the skillet. This is just for decoration.

Pretty, super simple skillet kitchen chalkboard ready!!!!

TIP: Try and follow the directions on the paint bottle regarding the drying time.
