I've seen a lot of Chalkboards on Pinterest and decided I wanted to make my own.
I went to Hobby Lobby to purchase the Chalkboard Spray Paint with my 40% Off Coupon making it only $4.80 instead of $8. If you didn't already know, Hobby Lobby ALWAYS has 40% Off any single regular price item, you can find it online here.
I decided I just wanted to use an old wood cutting board and spray paint the middle. I taped off the sides and got to work. The Chalkboard paint was really runny, so it made it difficult to spray paint the surface evenly. I would recommend using the regular chalkboard paint instead of spray paint, I think they have that at Hobby Lobby too.
I purchased a box of different colors of chalk from CVS for $4.
Here's how it turned out: Unfortunately I drew a cupcake on it the week before and it really wouldn't erase :( I wonder what I could use to remove the chalk better, any suggestions??
What do you think of this project? Have you used Chalkboard paint before?
