Hello! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! We had a couple of kiddos under the weather. Bleh! :( So hopefully we are all on the mend this week. :) One of the products I’ve been dying to try is the DecoArt Chalkboard Coating. Have you seen it yet? It’s amazing! You can turn just about any surface into a chalkboard. :) Just think of all of the possibilities with this one! So keep reading to see how easy it was to make this I love you because….chalkboard wood block. :)
To make my block of wood I used the exact same stenciling technique that I used to make this stenciled sign. So check out that tutorial to see my stenciling secret. ;) After the paint is dried & stenciling is done it’s time for some chalkboard fun. :)
Using a foam brush I applied my chalkboard coating up & down. Let the paint dry for an hour. Then I painted another coat back & forth in the opposite direction. Then I let my coating dry for 24 hours.
Then I conditioned my writing surface by rubbing a piece of chalk lightly over the block of wood & then erasing.
Now we were ready to use our chalkboard! Isn’t that the coolest thing ever? ha! ;)
What ideas do you have for using chalkboard coating? I’d love to hear! :)
