1. Measure the wall area you want to cover in the kitchen and ask your DIY store to cut a piece of 3/4" thick medium density fiberboard to size. Sand the edges smooth.
2. Drill two holes slightly larger than the width of your rope, in the top corners of the board.
3. Apply a single coat of Valspar® Super Black Primer followed by several thin coats of Chalkboard Paint until you have total coverage.
4. When the paint is dry, thread your rope through the holes, forming a loop at the back. Tie in large knots at the front to secure.
Note: Always follow usage instructions on the reverse of Valspar spray paint cans.
