A Bistro Blackboard In My Kitchen.

by admin

Want to refresh your kitchen by giving it a bistro-chic air?

Add a brasserie-style chalkboard to it: it’s a good excuse to scribble on the walls as an adult.

But no need to buy one!

You just have to do it yourself. Don’t worry, it’s easy. Look :

– painter’s tape

blackboard effect paint or slate paint, or ferromagnetic paint, more expensive but which has the advantage of being magnetic

Note: choose the quantity according to the surface to be covered. 250 ml are enough to make a small table, knowing that several layers are necessary.

– a brush or paint roller

– primer paint

– sandpaper

How to do

1. Prepare the surface of your board by roughly sanding with sandpaper.

2. Put on a coat of primer. So pass this coat of primer in the demarcated area.

3. Leave to dry overnight.

4. Then gently apply, preferably with a roller, a first coat of your slate or ferromagnetic paint.

5. Let dry, which may take up to overnight.

6. Finally, apply a second coat (a third may sometimes be necessary).


There you have it, your own bistro style chalkboard for your kitchen.

Nothing prevents further embellishing this bistro-style blackboard by creating an original frame, in driftwood for example.
