How to Make a Three Sectioned Chalkboard

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!

  2. your chalkboard looks awesome Susan! I love the yardstick. I just picked up a U-fix-it coffee table tonight--it's a three section table with missing glass, and I thought it would make a perfect three sectioned chalkboard as soon as I saw it. :)
