Have you seen the Chalkboard spray paint they have now? It looked so fun! We have a special event coming up and thought it would be fun to do some chalkboards to let guests know which way to the restrooms, or to encourage them to sign the guest book. Using the Chalkboard Paint was so easy! If you don’t add drying time in, it took me just minutes to paint, tape, spray and touch up my 6″ by 9″ frames. Here is what I did:
- Pressboard wood rectangles
- Acrylic paint & brush
- Painters tape
- Chalkboard paint
- Spray box
Add a strip of painters tape around the perimeter of your rectangle, making sure to get the tape all the way to the edge.
In a well ventilated area, and with the protection of a box or a piece of plastic, coat the top of the rectangle. I passed over it about three times to make sure I got enough coverage. I also had a mark from where the price tag was to cover up.
After dried completely, carefully remove tape and touch up any black paint that had made it’s way under the painter’s tape.
I loved our little chalkboards! They are just like the regular thing! They wipe off easily and work with every kind of chalk that we tried! Next up… a large board for the playroom!
Have you tried the chalkboard paint yet? What did you make into a super cool chalkboard? A menu? Chore list?
