Because our home accents are black and red, I thought it would be a "crafty" idea to paint that small 11" wide section with some Black Chalkboard Paint. So, instead of really wrecking that area completely with black paint we could never get rid of when we leave, Hunnie thought it would be even "craftier" if we painted some thin board and attach it to the side of the pantry.
After a trip to our local Home Depot, we came home with two boards, cut to fit perfectly! Of course, I had a jar of Folk Art Chalkboard Paint, so I got to work rolling. I rolled on three coats of Chalkboard Paint! I also rolled the backs of the boards with Folk Art Licorice because I've learned over time that when you're painting thin board, it's best to paint both sides so the board doesn't warp. This worked well.
I used some blue painters tape to tape off the borders I wanted and painted them Folk Art Lipstick Red. Two coats worked well.
Hunnie used black screws to attach the board to the pantry. He's so handy!
I'm so happy with the way this turned out. I love Chalkboard Paint!
