Chalkboard wall

I’ll start off by saying… Yes I know it’s not centered! ๐Ÿ™‚ we are going to add a cup on the right side to hold chalk which will make up for the difference in space. ๐Ÿ™‚

1. Tape off the size you want the board to be.
2. Paint on magnetic primer. I’d recommend three coats allow at least a half hour to dry in between each coat. (The primer takes a lot of stirring so have your hand ready to be in pain)
3. An hour after the last coast has dried add chalkboard paint. I did two coats with an hour in between the coats.
4. Allow 24 hours to dry completely then add your trim and you’re finished!

The final product!
