I might be the only person that has yet to use chalkboard paint on anything. Whether it be a whole wall, in a frame, on a pantry door – I really love it all, I just hadn’t painted anything with it. That was until recently. And I started small. We have wanted a chalkboard in our kitchen to write quick notes on but we don’t have a lot of wall space.
I enjoy incorporating outdoor elements into everyday indoor home use and I like that I’ve been seeing wood slices used for cake stands, centerpieces, coasters and more. So after stumbling upon the perfect size wood slice I knew I wanted to turn it into a chalkboard.
What You’ll Need:– wood slice (I found mine on Etsy. Some craft stores sell small ones or you could also find your inner Paul Bunyan and cut your own) – chalkboard paint – sharpie (or whatever color marker you would like, if you plan on drawing on your piece) – pencil, paintbrush & primer (not pictured, whoops!)
Step 1 – sketch your drawing onto your wood slice. Step 2 – use your marker and color in your sketch, erasing any leftover pencil marks.
Step 3 – Prime the area you want to paint with the chalkboard paint. Step 4 – Once primer is dried, apply the chalkboard paint. Let dry and repeat.
We then added a simple sawtooth picture hanger on the back. Now I just need to find a normal piece of chalk. It isn’t easy to write anything legible with the boys’ giant sidewalk chalk.
