The best thing about this photo booth is that you can easily erase and change your text to reuse the frame for different events.
A whiteboard one side...
a blackboard on the other side
Perfect for baby showers, hen’s parties, kid’s birthdays and much more!

Photo booth prop colours
Measure out the size of your photo booth based on the shape of a Polaroid photo. The bottom edge of the frame will need to be wider to allow for writing. Cut and sand your frame.
Apply one coat of Resene Quick Dry waterborne primer undercoat using a testpot roller to both sides of the frame. Make sure each side is completely dry before flipping it over to paint the other!
Apply two coats of Resene Blackboard Paint to one side of the frame using a testpot roller.
Once your first side is complete, flip the frame over and apply two coats of Resene Lumbersider in Resene Black White using a testpot roller.
Once the Resene Black White paint has dried completely, mix up your Resene Write-on Wall Paint according to the instructions. Using a clean testpot roller sleeve, apply two coats of the Resene Write-on Wall Paint. Wait for this to cure as per the instructions.
Once your board is ready to use, simply add your hashtag, event description, guest names or whatever you like in the lower part of the frame! Erase and change your text to reuse the frame for different events.
Step 7 (optional)
If you also love a good photo booth prop, why not make some of your own like Sarah did?
You could paint over existing props you can purchase from a dollar store or cut and make your own. Sarah painted them in a selection of bright Resene testpot colours and Resene Blackboard Paint. Have fun and be creative!
To get the most use out of your Resene Write-on Wall Paint, plan a few projects using it that you can paint at the same time, such as this photo frame and noticeboard areas. That way you’ll get multiple writable wall features out of one pack.
