Here is a fun DIY Project that is sure to please the whole family. Creating a chalkboard to write your grocery list on or for the kids to have some fun with, is easy! We would like to give you some simple instructions and ideas on how to make your own.
We love creating a chalkboards with cool picture frames. If you plan on mounting your chalkboard permanently onto your wall, paint directly onto the wall/Sheetrock. If you would like a finished piece that can be moved around, fit and mount a piece of wood or Masonite into the back of your frame. Here's another idea... roll it onto a whole wall, creating really fun area for the kids to draw on!
Once you figure out where you want to put your chalkboard, the next step is applying the paint. You can choose from any color of Ce Ce Caldwell Paint. A more traditional look would be the Beckley Coal. When painting the chalkboard, you need to apply 3 coats of paint. For the best finish, apply each coat of paint in the same direction. Allow the paint to completely dry between coats.
The final step is deciding what kind of finish you want your chalkboard to have. For a traditional chalkboard, run a sideways piece of chalk over the entire board in the same direction, erase, and your done.
If you would like a completely wipeable finish apply 1 to 2 coats of Ce Ce Caldwell's Satin finish. Once it is dry repeat the same step running the chalk over the board, erase, and your finished.

We are having a great time using Ce Ce Caldwell Paints for all of our projects around the shop. Our clients have impressed us tremendously with their creations as well. We are delighted to share with you the home of Monmouth County resident Richard Stabbert.
Richard decided to paint his traditionally sealed hardwood floors with our Simply White Ce Ce Caldwell Chalk, Mineral & Clay Paint... he went on to seal them with Ce Ce's Endurance plant derived finish.
This house amazing!!!
He started painting the floor in his foyer and he loved it so much, he kept going throughout the entire main floor.
We definitely think he has an eye for design!
Although, we don't recommend our paints and finishes for everyone's floors; Richard is glad to report they are holding up well.
Believe it our not, Richard is not a designer. He says "he.. is a person only in love with beauty".
Richard has a new book out, "Provincetown Memories" words and paintings by Richard Stabbert. You can purchase his book on Amazon.com or www.rstabbert.com
