If you have been following my earlier posts on the making of this Chalkboard, this is the step where the sign is painted over with Chalkboard Paint. First, I taped the edges so that none of the paint would get on the frame. The Chalkboard Paint was put on with a sponge roller so that it would go on smoothly. You could also brush it on, if you like. After this 1st coat dried the specified time, a 2nd coat was administered. And now I had to wait a few days before the next step.
Which is "priming" the board. How do you do this? You lay a piece of white chalk on its side and cover the entire board with it. Then you wipe it off (it does not come off completely...it's not supposed to!) with a dry cloth. Now it looks like a regular Chalkboard! The tape was removed, and now the next step can be taken.
