How to: make a kitchen chalkboard with PlastiKote spray paint

Add a stylish chalkboard to your kitchen using PlastiKote spray paint.

You will need:

MDF cut to size

Dust sheets/newspaper

PlastiKote Twist & Spray Primer in Black

PlastiKote Chalkboard



How to:

  • Measure the wall area you want to cover in the kitchen, and ask your DIY store to cut a piece of three quarter inch thick MDF to size. Sand the edges smooth.
  • Drill two holes, slightly larger than the width of your rope, in the top corners of the board.

  • Apply a single coat of Twist & Spray Black Primer, followed by several thin coats of Chalkboard until you have total coverage.
  • When the paint is dry, thread your rope through the holes, forming a loop at the back. Tie in large knots at the front to secure.
  • Always follow instructions on the can.

Top tip:  For best results, allow the Chalkboard to thoroughly dry for 7 days before using chalk on it.

You could also try putting the chalkboard into a frame and spraying the frame to match your kitchen decor. Or how about taking some old plant pots or yoghurt pots and turning them into stylish herb containers?
