Sorry that this post is late. I have been busy with finals, work, and getting ready for Haley’s graduation on Saturday. But I digress.
I have seen these chalkboards online and made one for myself, so I have decided to post how to turn a simple baking pan into a chalkboard.
First thing you need is these baking pans. I bought these three at a thrift store for 10 cents each. What a deal, right?
Next I painted the pan. I wasn’t too particular if the paint for the outside of the pan got on the inside because it would be painted over anyways. I chose pink and turquoise as my outside colors. Shocking isn’t it.
Next, I taped off the edges of the pan to protect the color and not get chalkboard paint on the outside. This was a little tricky because I wanted to cover the entire edge of the pan. So I had to use quite a few pieces of tape to cover the edges.
Now, it’s time for the chalkboard paint! I sprayed the inside of the pan completely to get a nice coat of chalkboard on the pan.
And Voila! They are done.
I decided to make a checklist on the turquoise pan of things that need to still be finished before the graduation and graduation party. Fortunately, I was able to mark one thing off already. And the last two things won’t be able to be checked off until after the ceremony on Saturday.
For the second pan, I decided to put my salutation. Because I love the saying and love pink, it worked perfectly.
These chalkboard pans are really easy to make and really easy to use. I use chalk markers to write on them, and the chalk marker comes off with a wet washcloth so you can change what it says. Check out my apartment bedroom blog here to see the chalkboard pan I have in my bedroom.
