Today we started with this.
Typical vintage double headboard. I really was drawn to the chunky top. Wasn't quite sure what to do with the open bottom?
My little helper wanted to paint too. What a perfect small project to task out.
After another coat and some distressing, I taped off the chalkboard part with Frog Tape. My husband swears by this stuff, never bleeds.
I picked mine up from Home Depot. I use the 1 inch thick tape, it seems to suffice.
I find it much easier to do the outside color and do the black last. I've tried the opposite and I find I do a lot of cutting in after. I'm kinda lazy, and like to cut the least as possible.
I used a 2 inch foam brush the spread the chalkpaint. I use Rustoleum's Chalk Board Paint, easy to apply and dries fast. I should state that neither of the products are paying me for this post, I just want to share the brands that work for me. Here's what the Rustoleum box looks like, Home Depot sells it for $22.97.
Hope you like Headboard Chalk Board DIY #2. Don't forget to check out my first post. Thanks for stopping in and take care.
