chalk wood trim
Step One: Prepare the surface by filling any holes and wiping it clean with a damp cloth.
Step Two: Measure and then tape around the area you want to paint. Use a level to help keep the tape lines straight.
Step Three: Using a roller, apply several coats of the chalkboard paint, allowing paint to dry between each coat.
Step Four: Allow the paint to set for three days, then prepare the wall by rubbing the entire surface with a piece of white chalk and wiping with a damp cloth.
Step Five: Add decorative trim to the finished chalkboard. Use a nail gun to hold it in place. Alternatively, you could paint a frame around the chalkboard directly on the wall.
TIP: Use sticky tack to hold artwork securely in place.
