WFMW: DIY Chalkboard Paint

wfmw-300x198

I’ve been hearing a lot about chalkboard paint and not just for creating chalkboards. I learned that it adheres really well to slick wood, but it’s kind of expensive.

I used a self-priming paint from Home Depot and without sanding or priming, I simply painted two coats on the piano.
