Large letter stickers (4-inch) I used foam letter stickers, but any stickers will work
Small letter stickers (2-inch)
1-2 inch paint brush or foam brush.
116×20 art canvas panel. I’m always finding unused canvases at thrift stores (the planned work of art not even started is apparently common) but canvases at craft stores are inexpensive, too, with coupons.
Prange chalkThis is THE best chalk for clean writing that will easily rub off – is WAY better than dollar store chalk.
Paint the canvas the color you’d like your letters to be. I used a green latex interior paint I had from another project. Acrylic will work as well. Let completely dry (I left it overnight to be sure).
Attach the larger sticker letters across the top to spell ‘menu’ and the smaller letters down the left side for each day of the week. Spray the prepped canvas with chalkboard paint using a couple of light coats, until none of the base color shows through.
Let dry to the touch.
Remove the letter stickers. If any black bled through the letters, touch up with a bit of colored paint. Let dry completely, at least 24 hours.
The last step is to condition the board to make it easier to write and erase the chalk. Rub the side of a piece of chalk over the entire surface of the canvas and then wipe with a rag to leave only a light layer of chalk.Repeat this process whenever the board becomes hard to erase, first wiping it down with damp cloth and letting dry.
