Hey guys! I’m sure you have noticed the growing chalkboard craze sweeping the DIY and interior design world. This looks and can be very practical maybe if you use it in your kitchen for weekly meus or a grocery list. BUT, it’s only awesome if you have freakishly amazing handwriting (which I don’t!). Honestly, I can barely write a legible address on my rent check.
Luckily, there is good news for those of us who aren’t a human computer that can produce freakishly amazing typography and precision. For us, we can get a little bit of help from an actual computer.
- Print out your message in the font you want (it will be easier if you chose a few bigger words if it’s your first time).
- Cover the reverse page with chalk, and I mean a lot of chalk.
- Place paper on the chalkboard and just track and fill the fonts on the computer paper! (Lefties you’re in luck don’t worry about smudging you can fill the fonts in any way you want!)
- Once you’re done lift the paper and touch it up!
Now if you do screw up, just use a small paintbrush and water, it’s honestly like a magic eraser. Well that’s my dirty little secret to make chalkboard letters that are so stylish, so trendy, and so, so easy.
Please show me your personal creations!
