Once upon a time when I was 9 years old I thought it would be a cool idea to paint my giant bulletin board that I have in my bedroom. I drew flowers and hearts and a place for all my cool fiends to sign their name. Then when I was 14 and going through my “Peyton Sawyer Emo phase” I decided to paint it black and white and put lyrics all over it but then I got lazy and only painted a corner of it.
In recent years I normally cover most of it up with pictures and art but again I’ve been getting lazy… Sooooo I decided to paint the whole thing with chalkboard paint since I had chalkboard paint left over from this project. Of course I ran out of paint after the first coat and had to head out and get more.
I started by taking off all the pictures I had which was a lot! And then wiped down the board with a moist cloth to get rid of any dust and dirt. After taping the frame off with electrical tape ( I had no painters tape)I used a foam brush to paint horizontally, then I let the paint dry while I went and bought another bottle and some more brushes. The bottle tells you to wait an hour between coats so I obeyed even though I was tempted not to. After my second coat of vertical lines I noticed there were some spots that you could still see under the paint so without waiting and hour I went over a few spots with a third coat (the world didn’t end)
Then it was finally time to decorate! I drew on a border using the chalkboard marker.I put up a few pictures of different groups of friends and some pictures of my family then did some small chalk outlines and flowers!
Now what can I chalkboard paint?
