I did this project around the time we were working on our farm table. Chalkboard stuff is ALL over Pinterest, so I generated a lot of my ideas there. I just used simple chalkboard paint from Lowe’s, as well as white oil based paint that we used on the table. The best part was using a projector to put up my design and copy onto the board. I do NOT have steady hands or any talent at free-handing so that was really the key.
