So, I moved onto plan C - make a chalkboard myself! This turned out to be the best plan because I could make the chalkboard the exact size I wanted, plus it only cost me $16.
Here's the step-by-step:
- Cut leftover board from metal art mounting project to size (I used a utility knife and sanded down the rough edges).
- Prime, 2 coats
- Paint with chalkboard paint ($12), 2 coats
- Drill a hole in each corner
- Mount to wall using mirror rosettes ($4)
Sorry Rube...you can't trick us anymore! :)
