Do-It-Yourself Chalkboard Paint Tutorial

Chalkboard Paint is Easier Than You Think!

Chalkboard paint is very popular right now!  Finally, kids can write on the walls and not be scorned by their parents!  Chalkboard paint is also very popular in large pantries.  This tutorial will take you step-by-step through the process of creating a chalkboard wall inside a pantry.

1.  Decide where to paint the chalkboard and tape it off.  Use a level to make sure the tape is level and you have nice straight lines.  Use a pencil and lightly make a line on the wall using the edge of the level.  Place the tape parallel to the line.  Leave the line slightly exposed so it will be painted over.  Step back from the wall and do an "eye check".  Make sure it looks like the tape is straight.  

2.  Prime the wall.  Easy - use a latex primer and a foam roller or a 3/8" nap roller.
