DIY Chalkboard

DIY Chalkboard www.chocolatecoveredblessings.wordpress.comI had an old dry erase board that was going to be thrown away… what a great opportunity to try out chalkboard paint! I decided to refurbish the board using a spray chalkboard paint. It was so simple!

I purchased spray chalkboard paint from Hobby Lobby (using my 40% off coupon). Spray Chalkboard Paint

Next I cleaned the board then applied 4 coats of chalkboard paint, spacing each coat about 30 minutes apart.

I allowed the board to completely dry for  24 hours before I applied a chalk primer. It is recommended to rub chalk over the entire board before use.

Very simple project and now the kids have a new chalkboard to use during school lessons or just for fun!
