On Thursday, I made a big chalkboard for their tap room with some help from friends. I thought it would also make a nice DIY project for anyone who has considered such a craft.
Materials needed for a chalkboard menu
- Barn wood
- Large board
- Valspar chalk paint
Step 1: setup
Step 2: paint the board
Paint your board. I had to paint 2 coats on each board.
Let the base coat dry before applying the second coat.
Cut barn wood to the size of your chalkboard to frame it.
Screw the frame into place.
And the best part, writing up your menu.
We used basic sidewalk chalk but you can get chalk markers if you prefer.
