This was a super easy project! And, now that I’ve bought a quart of chalkboard paint and have a lot left over, I plan to use it on a lot of random items!
1. Chalkboard paint from Home Depot – it’s already on the shelves mixed. My quart was less than $15.
2. Paint Brush – I prefer the foam brushes, they are less messy!
3. Something to turn into a chalkboard – I used a baking tray that was old with stuck on grease, and just wasn’t something I wanted to use for baking anymore. Some other ideas are a…picture frame, vase or wall!
To Make It:
1. Get your parents permission!
2. Cover your workspace so you don’t drip on the floor. For indoor projects during the winter, I use an old flat sheet.
3. Paint the area that you want to be able to chalk up in the future. The paint goes on very thin, so do 3 or 4 coats. Give each coat 5 minutes to dry before painting the next one.
4. Let it dry overnight, and in the morning, start writing messages with chalk! It will wipe off easily with a damp paper towel.
As shown above, I’ve used my tray to serve sushi! This was right before the last Giants game – so excited that they made it to the Super Bowl! It’s going to be an exciting game on Sunday!
