I was ready to change up my bedroom. So the only logical way to do this was to paint an entire wall with black chalkboard paint. It wasn't hard and I am in love with the results. Here's how to make your own CHALKBOARD WALL!
you will need-
- chalkboard paint (found at Home Depot)
- paint brush
- paint roller
- plastic tarp
- painter's tape
- chalk (of course)
using painters tape, mask off anything you don't want the black paint all over. Lay down plastic tarp.
cut around the corners where the paint roller won't fit with paint brush.
use paint roller to fill in entire wall.
wait three-four hours before recoating the wall with paint brush and roller.
let paint dry overnight. then cover in chalk to cure the chalkboard.
wait twenty minutes before erasing the chalk. in this time, clean up the dust. BEWARE it will be everywhere.
erase chalk with a damp rag. be sure to clean rag in between coats.
step seven and one half-
yay! you're done! now it's time to doodle.
sit back and enjoy your work.
YES, it's that simple.
