Our chalkboard wall is finished!
It all started with this picture from
Miss Mustard Seed Interiors
Thanks to Miss Mustard Seed and her Facebook posts I was able to find both the yearling heifer and wreath here
We prepared the wall by filling all the nail holes and drawing out the area to the painted.
To give the chalkboard wall a bit more height and to keep in-line with the doorways we decided to add a slight bump to match the hutch.
We used this pattern that we had saved from a gate project at our previous home.
We used our level to keep the lines straight.
And taped off the area to be painted.
We worked late into the night so the following few pictures were taken with spotlights :)
Here is the third and final coat.
The next morning I seasoned the wall by taking a piece of chalk and rubbing it vertically across the entire board.
Then I did the same horizontally.
After the chalkboard was covered with chalk I gently erased it with a soft towel.
It’s ready to use!
I finished decorating it this morning and snapped these pictures.
