    I just LOVE this idea...did you use the chalkboard paint like Martha? How long did it take you to tape all the different squares out...what was your start to finish timeline? thx

    Thank you - I did use chalkboard paint! I started it later one evening and I live in AZ where it's very dry so paint tends to dry quickly. I sanded and primered and had to wait a while for the primer to dry. Then 2 coats of paint then drew guides with a pencil and taped off some squares at a time. I'd say probably 4 hours for the squares but that was a lot of going inside and waiting for the paint to dry so I could do the next squares. I worked on it over 2 days. I recommend a couple coats on each square though so you have enough to sand through to make it smooth. There's a few spots where I sanded through the lighter color because it was thinner.

    It is painted on something called hardboard that I picked up at the hardware store, my walls are too textured for chalkboard paint.
