It's time to add some order to your meals!
You will need:
1. Make sure the MDF is clean and free from dust, then paint on two coats of Rust-Oleum Chalkboard Paint, I used Black but you could use Red, Blue, Pink or even Clear if you wanted a different colour to match your room scheme.
Top Tip: A light sand in between coats will give you an extra smooth surface but it’s not essential.
2. Once the paint is fully dry, mask off a 2cm border with painters tape, then paint two coats of Rust-Oleum Metallic Finish Furniture Paint in Gold. Before the second coat is fully dry remove the painters tape gently.
Top Tip: If you leave it to dry too much it may crack when you take it off. You can also use masking tape, but painters tape will give a much neater line. I’ve learned that through some bad experiences!
3. Measure the space you have and divide it by 7 to give you the line split. Measure and mark out in pencil where you need to draw your lines, then go over then carefully with the Rust-Oleum Metallic Leafing Pen, I used Gold.
4. Stencil the days of the week on each row using a Rust-Oleum Metallic Leafing Pen. I used a stencil that I had but you could do these freehand if you don’t have one. Then draw a vertical line to the side of the letters to define the chalk-able area.
