Chalkboard paint is a huge trend—and why not? It creates a ready surface where you can jot down your shopping list or notes to family members, as well as a place where your kids (and even you!) can express your artistic urges whenever the mood strikes.
That said, there’s a method to applying chalkboard paint that homeowners would be wise to follow. Make sure to heed these do’s and don’ts, from what surface to paint to how long you should wait between coats to which kind of chalk to use once it’s good to go.
