HOW TO MAKE A CHALKBOARD THAT’S MAGNETIC | DIY HOME PROJECT


Hey everyone and thanks for stopping by. Today
I’m going to show you how to build a framed magnetic chalkboard. So first you’ll want
to start by cutting 45 degree angles into the frame of your wood. Make sure that your
angled are all facing the correct direction. I used a mitre box to help me cut the angles
and I also used the handsaw just to make things pretty easy. After I made the eight cuts on
the frame I moved onto sanding the edges. You want to make sure that your edges are
nice and smooth and that there are no jagged pieces hanging off or anything that could
possibly leave a splinter. Next for the chalkboard part I actually used a pretty large piece
of plywood I found at Lowes and if you’d like to see the exact measurements I have those
on my blog so just head on over there. I also used magnetic primer underneath my chalkboard
paint so it doubles as a magnetic board. I used two coats of the magnetic primer and
then on top of that after that was dry I used two coats of the chalkboard paint. I actually
had to let that dry for a day just to break in the double coat that I did. It added an
extra day which was okay because I had time to stain the frame. For the stain I used Minwax
and it was in the stain color Jacobean. I really really like the stain I used, I actually
use a towel instead of a paintbrush because I really like to work the stain into the wood.
To make sure it really gets in there. I did all of the wood not just what you can see.
I did all of it just for my OCD and it worked really well. Once everything was finished
I was able to put it together. I assembled it on the wall and just installed it right
away. It came out really good. We haven’t really put it to use yet but we’re currently
working on our house still so this was just a really fun project and I’m sure I will have
some pictures and videos up of us using it soon. Thanks for stopping by! See ya next
time.

  1. Very nice wood frame made. For the magnetic primer painting work, maybe consider using "Chalknetic Chalkboard Paper" which is much more fast and easy to apply. It's available on Amazon now.

  2. Pleased with Chalkboard>>>nub.best/vc6a I like that the frame is really wood and not fake. I have not used it yet, but I am not expecting any problems.
