Creating a Rustic Entry Chalk Board

A combination of Nature green and Grapefruit pink gave a punch to this rustic Entry Chalk Board. With spring upon us, these two Colorantic colours will give your furniture a bright, vintage look!

Recycle your old items and give them a second life with chalk paint. It adheres well to almost any surface. Here are the products that I used for this creation.

All surfaces needs to be cleaned to help the paint adhere to the surface. Colorantic’s Cleaner and Varnish Remover removes all dirt and impurities, such as oil or other greasy substances that may have settled on it. Leave on for recommended time and wipe off.

Once all the surfaces are dry, you will sand your project with the Colorantic Sanding Block. A primer was not necessary for this project, as I wanted to bring out the wood grain to give it a vintage Boho look.



Applying the paint and creating the Boho effect


Grapefruit was applied all over. I let it dry for an hour between the two coats. Nature was chosen to bring out the angles, the corners and darken the sides. One coat was enough.

I let my project dry for a good hour before I started sanding it all over to achieve the desired aged effect. In some areas, I applied a little more pressure to the sanding in order to bring out the wood grain.



Creating a Chalk Board


To make the chalkboard, a panel was inserted into the wood frame and painted with Night. Three coats of paint are recommended for the chalkboard, with a light sanding between coats. After the third coat has dried, rub a chalk all over the board surface and wipe it off. Your chalkboard is now ready to use.





Colorantic’s Natural Beeswax was applied all over the frame (careful not apply to the chalkboard). Let it dry for a few days and your Entry Chalk Board is ready hang!
