Custom Chalkboard

What you need to make your own:
• Frame (3' x 2')
• 3/16" PVC board
• chalkboard paint
• high density foam roller
• sign materials: vinyl, masking material squeegee, computer, design software and a plotter. (or go to a sign shop)
• Twine
• wooden clothespins
• tac nails
• wall anchors and screws
• chalk

I was lucky enough to find this awesome frame at a thrift shop for $15.
I then rolled 2 coats of chalkboard paint on to a piece of 3/16 PVC board i had with a high density foam roller. (Let it dry for 3 or more days)
I designed, cut and installed the custom  vinyl graphics to the dry board.
I then tacked the board to the frame and hung it on the wall.
I personally think it turned out great! It is located in our kitchen.
