Using Chalkboard Paint Around The House
- Tape Measure
- FrogTape® Painter's Tape
- Chalkboard Paint
- Foam Roller
- Putty Knife
- 220-Grit Sandpaper
- Paint Tray
Pick a smooth surface, whether you're painting a whole wall or just a section.
Use a tape measure to map out the size of your section of chalkboard.
Mask off the area surrounding your chalkboard section with FrogTape Painter's Tape.
Lightly sand over the section you'll be painting. This will help the chalkboard paint stick.
Apply two coats of paint, letting the first coat dry completely before applying the second.
While the second coat of paint is still wet, remove the painter's tape.
Once the paint is fully dry, prepare it by rubbing a piece of chalk over the entire chalkboard surface.
Enjoy your new chalkboard!
