Kitchen Chalkboard by Shilpa


Hello Everyone,  Shilpa here,

  In few hours New Year will start, I belive you all are enjoying with family and friends.

so today, I've quick post to share with you....its Kitchen chalk board.

New year,  new resolutions, new plannings .. and I love being organized.  For my shopping and to do list I wanted to make small Chalkboard.

Here's the step by step

I cut out thick chipboard of desired size, rounded the corners. Next I applied Faber Castell Design Memory Craft Chalkboard paint onto it. For better results I applied 2 coats. It dries in minutes, I am lovin it!!


I wanted to decorate it, but had to keep space for writing as well. I chose upper right corner and applied Whipped Spackle through stencil. That created wonderful texture.


 I took out  my lovely yellow Gelatos® to bring the  color on this board. I applied Gelatos® directly on texture and spread with my fingers.

For final touch, I added flowers, dragonflies, heart, sugardots.

And My chalkboard is ready to go in Kitchen.


 Hope you liked this fun way of using chalkboard paint for your creations. You can make similar one for Kid's room or for craft room!!

Thanks so much for your visit today

Wish you a very Happy New Year!!
