First, prepare the surface. Walls made of plaster, metal, wood, brick, drywall, and concrete all work well. Associates in the Lowe’s paint area can help you identify the best products and tools to prep your surface. Measure and apply painter’s tape around the chalkboard area. We used the chalkboard paint #203261 for under $15. Follow the manufacturer recommendations for the number of coats and curing times. Finally, remove the tape after the final coat dries to reveal a nice crisp edge!

Attach a plastic drywall mixing container (#124174) to the wall with screws and wall anchors as a clever catch-all for writing supplies and an all-important eraser.
