Home Living : August 3rd 2010
HLC - HOME LIVING: CENTRAL, Tuesday, August 3, 2010 3 A place for you to scribble » ADVERTISING FEATUREHOMELIVING Whether you are a practical person who writes lists, a creative person who loves to draw, or someone in between, an erasable chalkboard is the perfect surface to scribble down your shopping list, let your imagination run wild or simply jot down daily reminders. Chalkboard paint is an easy and inexpensive way to create an interactive surface in any room of the house or for any member of the family. Try painting a chalkboard in the kitchen, on walls, cupboards or inside the pantry door. Another great place to apply chalkboard paint is in the kids' playroom or bedroom. Paint desk or table tops, walls or toy boxes to create a fresh canvas that will encourage your child's artistic talents and imagination. And the surface can be erased with a damp cloth. Here's how to create a chalkboard in your home: Step 1 -- Prepare the surface Clean the surface or wall with sugar soap and rinse with water. Scrape and sand any loose material or old flaking paint. Fill any cracks or holes with suitable filler and sand and dust the area. For optimum appearance apply one coat of acrylic primer sealer undercoat. Step2--Mask Mask the edges of the surface, walls or object you intend on painting using Scotch-Blue painter's tape from 3M. Step3--Paint You can now apply chalkboard paint with a good quality brush or a small nap roller. Apply the first coat then allow a minimum of two hours before you apply the second coat. Then allow at least 45 hours before use for the entire surface or painted object to dry. Step 4 -- Chalk Away All you need now is a selection of colourful chalk to draw, write, sketch, note, jot or scribble away.
