DIFFICULTY: Easy
ESTIMATED TIME: Weekend

MATERIALS:

  • [1] of 600 x 935 hardboard 3mm[1] of 120 x 600mm supawood 9mm
  • [2] of 100 x 800mm supawood 9mm
  • [1] of 100 x 400mm supawood 9mm
  • [1] of 30 x 600mm supawood 9mm
  • [1] of 20 x 600mm supawood 9mm
  • Wood glue
  • Silicone sealer and caulk gun
  • 240-grit sandpaper
  • Masking tape
  • Newspaper
  • Rust-Oleum 2X heritage white spray paint
  • [1] 690 x 12mm supawood
  • * clear protective spray
  • Rust-Oleum chalkboard paint
  • [2] ring hangers
  • Picture wire
  • [2] picture hooks and nails

Have all your pieces cut to size at your local Builders Warehouse or DIY.Sand all supawood edges with 240-grit sandpaper until shiny and smooth.Lay all the pieces face up on newspaper and lightly spray on two coats of Rust-Oleum 2X spray paint, allowing drying time between each coat.


Place the hardboard face up and glue the sides and bottom section directly onto the hardboard.Assemble the top section separately, gluing together the individual components and then glue this onto the hardboard.Let the glue dry overnight.


Just to let you know that I did this step wrong!Apply chalkboard paint to the front of the hardboard BEFORE you glue everything together. I realised afterwards that this would have been so much easier.


Screw two ring hangers into back of chalkboard with picture wire strung between rings.Nail picture hooks into wall and hang.
