Since we moved into this old ranch-style farmhouse in the winter, we did not want to paint the walls and be stuck indoors with the smell of fumes. But there are child’s scribbles on some parts of the walls including these white linen closets. I tried and tried to scrub them off but they would not come off.
Inspired by the child’s scribbles, my husband rolled two layers of Chalkboard Paint on the Linen Closet Doors. It only took one 30-oz. can of Rust-Oleum Chalkboard Paint to do it.
Materials: Rust-Oleum Chalkboard Paint, Painters Masking Tape, Paint Roller, Metal Paint Tray, Drop Cloth, Sandpaper, Fan.
Sand your surface, make sure it’s clean. Masking tape the edges to make sure you don’t smudge past what you want to paint. Set up your drop cloth under your workspace. Then lay that paint. Since we are doing this in the winter, we had to keep one window open and run the fan. Instructions say wait 4 hours before rolling that second layer, and wait 4 days before using the chalkboard.
To prepare the Chalkboard, rub the whole surface with chalk, then erase. Now we’re all set to draw or write or scribble or doodle. I’ve never drawn this big!
I love my 8 year old daughter’s chalkboard art!
She takes after her Dad.
