Extra Big, Extra Easy Chalkboard

I have never been one to keep the family schedule in my phone. I prefer to write things down (I am old fashioned that way) in a place where I won't miss it. A few years ago, my husband and I put together this huge chalkboard to go on a wall in our kitchen. The whole thing took less than an hour, and if memory serves, it was around $50.
Here is what you will need:
One piece lauan plywood  (we used a 4'x7'x 1/4" piece)
Chalkboard paint and paint roller
Finish nails and nail gun (if you don't have one I believe you can rent one from a big box hardware store)
Stain for trim

We simply nailed the piece of wood to the wall after painting it with chalkboard paint (you will want to use a level here). Finish nails are tiny, so if we decide to take it down, the damage to the wall is minimal. We then put up the trim that we had cut at the hardware store. No fancy corners needed (unless of course you want them) you can see what we did below.
Then, we nailed the trim on top of the plywood, so it was flush with the edge. Again, the nails are so tiny, you can only see a tiny hole, but you have to look very close. I like the added element of character they give.
I decided to stain the trim after it was hung, but it could also be left naked, or painted a different color.
If you decide to give this a go and have questions, let me know!

Generally, whiteboards are used in commercial, residential and health sectors - whereas chalkboards in education.

If consumables are the benchmark, chalks are way cheaper than dry erase pens - perhaps that is why it is preferred in classrooms. Delhi institute of digital marketing
