How to Make a Three Sectioned Chalkboard6:36:00 AM
When I had a long thin piece of chalkboard leftover from another project
I needed to think of a creative way to use it...
I began with several pieces of wood the same length as the chalkboard.
I placed them along the top and the bottom of the leftover chalkboard.
I love the graphic look of the yardstick I used along the top.
Using my very favorite nail gun I nailed the pieces together and added a few cross sections to create dividers along the chalkboard.
I decided hooks of some kind would be a good addition to the bottom of the chalkboard to hold keys or leashes.
The piece got painted with Pure White Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® with a wash of French Linen over the top.
A wash is an easy paint technique done by spraying water on your project then using just a tiny bit of paint on your brush to add color to the base coat. Use a rag to wipe off some of the water and French Linen. If more color is needed I repeat the process.
When the paint is dry I gave the piece a coat of clear wax then nailed the chalkboard to the back.
This was a simple build and it came out great!
