Vintage Cutting Board Kitchen Chalk Board

Here’s a little randomness I learned this week …

Did you know a group of cats is called a clowder and a litter of kittens is called a kindle?

That has absolutely nothing to do with today’s project, but we have two new baby kittens (which I’ll share more about later), and my daughter told me that random bit of trivia, so of course I had to share it. 🙂

Okay, back to my latest project, and it’s an easy one!

Supplies Needed for Vintage Cutting Board Kitchen Chalk Board | www.knickoftime.net

Supplies Needed:

cutting board

wood stain

chalkboard paint

foam roller

Directions:

  1. Stain the cutting board.
  2. Use painter’s tape to tape off chalkboard area.
  3. Apply chalkboard paint with a foam roller.
  4. Remove tape and allow paint to dry.
  5. Write message, hang the chalkboard & enjoy!

It’s important to stain the cutting board before applying the chalkboard paint.  Staining it afterward might ruin the chalkboard surface.

Make sure you choose quality painter’s tape so it sticks well to the wood.  I used clearance tape I had on hand and struggled to keep it adhered to the board.

Don’t overload the foam roller with paint.  I rolled most of it off on paper towels before rolling to minimize bleed under the tape.

Peel the tape off and let the paint dry completely.  You can speed the drying time with a blow dryer.

As with any chalkboard, you need to season the surface before writing on it.  Just rub the side of a piece of chalk on the surface and rub the chalk in with your fingertips.

Normally I would use a Scrabble tile holder to hold chalk, but I didn’t have one, so I cut a piece of antique tape measure and screwed it in at the bottom of the cutting board.  It works great.

    Love this idea. I wanted a chalk board in my kitchen and I found a old spice rack with a door that hangs on the wall. It had one of the old fruits in the bowl pictures, that wasn’t in great condition. I used chalkboard paint and now I have a spice rack and a chalkboard. It works great.

    I wanted a chalk board in my kitchen and used an old spice cabinet with a door I found at a garage sale. It had a picture of the fruit bowl and it wasn’t in good condition so I painted over it with chalkboard paint and now I have a chalkboard and a spice rack. Love the cutting board idea, might have to try one of those for one of my family members.
