Use 1" paintbrush to apply primer. Tip: Paint in long, smooth passes to reduce appearance of brush strokes. Allow primer to dry.
Tape off area where chalkboard will be painted. Cover every other surface with tape and paper to protect from overspray (Image 1). Spray on two coats of chalkboard paint, allowing dry time between coats (Image 2). Remove tape and paper once second coat is dry. Tip: When spraying, it's better to apply two thin coats over one thick coat. If dripping does occur, allow the coat to dry, sand and reapply paint.
Apply two coats of white semigloss paint using 1" paintbrush. Allow approximately four hours' dry time between coats. If needed, tape off chalkboard.
