What you will need:
Old cabinet door
Wood scroll or embellishment
Paint - 2 colors
First you will want to measure and find the middle of the cabinet door.
Next, glue your scroll to the cabinet door and let it dry. I like to put it right in the middle, but other placements would look good to.
Now, it is time to paint. I like to paint a light coat of brown or grey as a base coat, then add a few coats of yellow paint and sand it to give it an antique look. You can also use a faux glaze over yellow chalk pant if you prefer, but I like to use regular spray paint when it is something I will be handling quite a bit.
You will want to wait for several hours before you sand, so the paint has so time to cure.
Next, cut your mdf chalkboard to fit your frame and attach it - I had my hubby use his air stapler to fasten the mdf to the frame.
Here is a picture of several chalkboards I made before I added a design.
After you have sanded it to your liking, let your creative juices flow and add a chalkboard design. You can use my chalkboard tutorial Here if you like.
What would be calming to you?
