DIY Chalkboard

comfort + chalkboard
What you need:

* precut MDF sheet. Bought mine at Home Depot for about $4.
* Chalkboard Spray paint
* any primer. You can do a primer spray paint and it is super easy. I did a magnetic primer (not spray) and wish I didn’t. It is clumpy and gave my otherwise smooth MDF a bumpy texture. I don’t mind it so much, makes it more earthy/organic looking, but I’d skip it if I was doing it again.
* sidewalk chalk. easier to handle and comes in fun shapes.

  3. Oh yes, and Kalini has that “you touch my brother and you die” look down. She is so cute how protective she is of him.
