Time: 2 hour
Cost: Plywood ($6) + Chalkpaint ($11) + Crown Molding ($10) + Gold Spray paint (6)= $32
Step 1- I bought a slab of thin plywood at my local Home Depot to serve as the board.
Step 2- I painted the plywood with Chalkpaint purchased from Home Depot.
Step 3- I used crown molding to serve as the frame of the chalkboard. I spray painted it gold because I was looking for a vintage feel.
Step 4- VOILA! I nailed the plywood straight to my wall and the molding right on top of it.
