Get your paint brushes ready…’cause this is a fun one! And it’s so easy, you wouldn’t believe it.

Here’s what you’ll need:

 

● Old picture frame or cabinet door
● Fusion™ Mineral Paint
● Brush
● Chalk
● Cloth

 

I started out with this wall hanging that I picked up at a thrift store for cheap! I liked the size and that it was a nice flat surface to write on.Make your own Chalkboard with Fusion™ Mineral Paint! 5It was time to say bye-bye birdy. I painted two quick coats of Coal Black over top. Keep in mind that you can use any Fusion™ colour you want. Ceramic or Homestead Blue give a really nice old schoolhouse effect!Make your own Chalkboard with Fusion™ Mineral Paint! 6Beautiful! Now just one more step! Take a piece of chalk, turn it on its side and rub it along the entire surface. What we’re doing here is conditioning the chalkboard. This will stop any shadow effect- you know, the faint chalk line left overs after you try to erase something.Make your own Chalkboard with Fusion™ Mineral Paint! 2Once you’ve covered the surface, grab a cloth (keep it dry) and rub all the chalk into the board.Make your own Chalkboard with Fusion™ Mineral Paint! 3You’re now ready to grab your piece of chalk and get to work!
