How to make your own chalkboard

In a previous article we showed you how to make chalkboard paint. If you read it then you know it’s not difficult at all and you also know that it’s very versatile and fun for all ages. Now we’re going to show you how to make a chalkboard and to put that paint to good use. You can place it anywhere you want and it can have any dimensions.You’ll need wood, primer, a paintbrush, chalkboard paint, a roller and wall hooks if you want to hang it on a wall. The board can have any dimensions you want. Once you have it, start by applying a coat of primer.

Let it dry and then apply two coats of chalkboard paint that you bought or made yourself. Let it dry properly between each coat. After it’s dry, attach the d-ring hangers. Hang the board on the wall and it’s done. You could also skip the board and just paint a part of the wall or cabinet but then you wouldn’t be able to move it around. This way you can place your chalkboard wherever you want.
