If you've followed my blog for awhile, then you may know that I write a monthly DIY article for a local magazine called FAYETTE WOMAN. This was my project for the September issue...
A common trend in home décor is chalkboard signs. This faux chalkboard is created using paint, while giving you the look of chalk. The permanency of the paint allows the sign to be used year after year. And, if using a framed thrift store painting, you won’t spend a lot of money.
Acrylic Paint in Black & White
White Paint Pen (optional)
Printer & Printer Paper
Cover the painting with 2 coats of black acrylic paint.
Paint the frame with white acrylic paint.
Print out the words and pumpkins for the sign.
Using the side of a piece of chalk, rub the back of the paper.
Place the paper on the “faux” chalkboard and trace over the letters and design with a pencil. This will transfer them onto the chalkboard.
Once the transfer is complete, go over it with white acrylic paint or a white paint pen.
Allow the white paint to dry, and rub over the chalkboard with the side of a piece of chalk.
Wipe over the surface with a rag to maintain the look of a chalkboard.
This project is easy and inexpensive enough that you just may want to make one for every season!
