Realized I hadn’t posted a picture of our chalkboard “after” yet. It has been a rousing success…I love it! And I’m hoping that the announcement in the middle will get my dear husbands attention tomorrow morning *hint hint!*
Also realized that I didn’t tell you how I put this together. I purchased Rust-Oleum magnetic primer and chalkboard paint at either Home Depot or Lowes-I can’t remember which. Those two blur together in my head. It was probably about 30 bucks for the 2 cans, but I’ll be able to do many projects with both. Well worth the money. You can also get the chalkboard tinted in a few other colors-I just preferred black.
And if you want to go the make-your-own way, I’ve done that too. It’s just for the chalkboard paint though, and is posted here.
