  • How to make a chalkboard. Making A Wall Chalkboard - Step 1
    Step 1

    One of the best ways you can maximize a small space is to paint a chalkboard right onto the wall. If put in an entryway, it is a great place to leave notes and messages.

    Begin by taping out the area you would like to be your new chalkboard.

    To finish off your chalkboard, don't forget to season it before writing anything on it. By rubbing a piece of chalk (on its side) all over the board, you will prevent leaving permanent marks on the board when you begin to write on it.
