This was a menu board I made for a Memorial Day Cookout. I took a 2’x4′ sheet of 1/4″ plywood, sanded it smooth, and taped off an area for the chalkboard paint. I used six coats of chalkboard spray paint – allowing it to dry in between coats. Then, as per the instructions – covered the entire area in chalk and “polished” it. I removed the tape, added the MENU at the top in acrylic paint and I am good to go for my next cookout.
