I bought an Ung Drill frame from Ikea a week or so ago to use as a chalkboard.

It's plastic and white but I wanted mine blue, turquoise actually.  I wasn't sure how the paint would hold but decided to bite the bullet and paint it with acrylic craft paint.   It painted up surprisingly well and after two coats I distressed it with white again.  I painted the cardboard insert and put it back in the frame minus the glass.  At some stage I'll replace it with 3mm board but for now the cardboard works ok.

I like the solid blue one below better so I may add another coat of turquoise to cover over the white distressing on mine.
