- Any size or shape piece of wood
- Paint color
- Chalkboard paint
- Paint brushes
And some little extras if you want, like clear plastic frames, ribbon, buttons, etc.
Step 1 - First you want to paint with the color you choose around the piece of wood everywhere besides the place you want to put the chalkboard. I choose purple!
Step 2 - After the paint color dries, you next want to paint with your chalkboard paint in the spot or shape you want your chalkboard to be. Helpful hint: I used tape to tape off the area and shape I want my chalkboard to be.
Step 3 - You next want to let the chalk paint dry for 24 hours as the directions state, and then you are free to apply any extras you want! Have fun make it your own. If you are using it at your wedding adding plastic frames around it gives you a chance to display some of your engagement photos. If you want a simpler touch a lace bow will do the trick!
