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
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!
Your Chalk board can be used to hang your keys and to leave messages too! Follow me on my Facebook page L’atelier du meuble vintage.
