How in this world did I miss this stuff I ask ya’ll???
This is without a doubt the most perfect matte finish I have EVER been able to achieve on a DIY chalkboard. Trust me when I say that’s saying something. Honest to God I have long since lost count of how many chalkboards I have made over the last five years. You can make a chalkboard out of anything anyway but now with this stuff you can do it a heck of a lot easier.
Here is another tool that will make your DIY life a lot easier as well:

I got temporary nerve damage in my right index finger years ago from trying to spray paint an antique iron bed. This trigger thing slips right on to the top of a spray can. Not only does it save a person’s index finger it allows for more even application of the spray paint.
Back to the chalkboard project……
I picked up an old $3 rectangular picture at the Goodwill a while ago. I have a pile of frames out in my garage just waiting for me to get board one day. I dismantled it first, removing the glass. I cleaned the glass with Windex and leaned it upright to make sure it was good and dry before I painted it with the chalkboard spray paint. The frame it’s self was in good shape but dirty so I wiped it down with a damp rag and then with some hemp oil on a paper towel to bring back the luster of the wood.
I love how it turned out 🙂
I applied four good coats of the chalkboard spray paint, allowing it to dry completely in between each coat. I also allowed it to ‘cure’ about 14 hours before writing on it because I know me. I probably redo a chalkboard a minimum of four times before I am happy. Long story short, it held up really well to wiping off with a damp lint free cloth about four times.
I have to tall y’all I love this matte black finish so much that I am dying to try it on a piece of furniture :)))
Bye bye brush on chalkboard paint ….. at least on glass anyway !
