chalkboards and how to prep

Did you know that on a new chalkboard surface, prepping it correctly will make a big difference in it's future use? I love chalkboards for their versatility. They are perfect for
  1. kids to practice spelling &art
  2. keeping lists for groceries, chores, to do etc
  3. inspirational quotes
  4. photo props
  5. endless uses
Chalkboard surfaces can be painted on wood, glass, tin, drywall, again the choices are endless. Frames painted in fun colors are my favorite chalkboard choices. Here are a few I have done in the past as well as a few current ones for sale on my Creative Moments Facebook page.






 







 I even added chalkboard top to a childs table set and a dresser hutch for a coffee bar

But after the chalkboard surface cures for 3+ days it is time to use but in order to avoid ghost writing and to get a nice finish it much be prepped.
 To do this, take a piece of chalk and lay on its side.
 Rub over entire surface then wipe with a dry soft cloth.
 Wallaa it is ready for use.
Check out the current chalkboards I have for sale on my Creative Moments Facebook page! Enjoy your new chalkboard!
