I've got a major thing for this Americana Chalkboard paint, so I thought it would be fun to create something chalkboardy to help me get organized this year.
I was thinking this would be perfect to hang in a mudroom, laundry room, kitchen, or anywhere that you can see it and use it often.
It's a chalkboard and cork board all in one!
- Cork Board Of Any Size
- Paint Brush
- Adhesion Medium
I started out by taping off the edges of my cork board. BUT, let me tell you that I later decided I didn't really need this step because the black chalkboard paint probably would have covered any blue that I had gotten on the cork. So, this step is optional:
Then I painted the edges of the board in my turquoise paint.
Next, I recommend doing a coat of paint adhesion medium on the cork. This will help your chalkboard paint stick. Then give it a coat or two of chalkboard paint:
And then let it dry and you can write on it with chalk AND pin things on it!
