How to Use Chalkboard Paint
Chalkboard paint is easy to use, even for people with little painting experience. All you have to do is place a coat of primer on a wood or metal surface and allow it to dry for at least two hours. Depending on the surface, it may need a few more coats, but it is that simple! You can also use magnetic primer for a magnetic chalkboard. To do this, use two or three coats of a magnetic primer for the most potent effect and use lightweight magnets after it dries.
Framed Chalkboard Wall
Use stained wood or stencils to frame an area on your dining room wall and paint with chalkboard paint. A wall in your dining room is an excellent spot for your favorite quote or a seasonal greeting. You can also use this idea in your kitchen or chalkboard paint to make an accent wall for meal plans, recipes, and grocery lists.
Frame a Doorway
You can paint the trim using Benjamin Moore ADVANCE Interior Paint and the area surrounding the doorway with chalkboard paint. Painting this area gives your home a touch of farmhouse chic and a spot to leave quick notes for your family.
Chalkboard paint allows you to create a functional chalkboard in any shape and size in your garage. You can even paint a portion of the inside of your garage door. A chalkboard is a handy feature for keeping track of home projects you work on from the garage.
Let your children draw and make crafts without worrying about the surface of your wood tables. Pick up a small table at a thrift shop and coat the top with chalkboard paint. Voila! A fun and functional area that's made to color on. You can also use chalkboard paint in your child's bedroom or playroom to give your little one creative freedom without destroying the finish of traditionally painted walls.
Chalkboard paint is a unique way to create place cards for weddings or gatherings. It's also a fantastic way to make a one-of-a-kind easel at outdoor parties to welcome guests.
