Chalkboards are one of the hottest designing trends around. They can be used virtually in every room of your house. You can buy chalkboards from many home goods stores, but you can also follow Nicole’s lead from theinspiredhive and create your own custom chalkboard.
In her tutorial, Nicole walks us through the process of designing a piece that expresses your personal style. Nicole started with a pre-painted piece of MDF, but you can always purchase an unpainted piece and apply the chalkboard paint yourself. She then stained and distressed boards to surround the chalkboard and adhered them to the top and bottom of the MDF. A heavy piece of jute rope was then attached to the top board, and this is what the chalkboard will hang from.
Some of the most valuable information in the tutorial is Nicole’s explanation of how to season the chalkboard and how to add text to the chalkboard.
