- Wedding: October 2013 - A Beautiful converted Barn
i bought the boards from another bride so they were already painted with blackboard paint. i covered the whole board in chalk (using a stick of chalk on its side) and cleaned it off… apparently (according to google) this stops any ‘shadowing’.
i decided that i liked the look of the crisper lines that a liquid chalk pen gives over the rustic dudty lines created by a stick of chalk – i bought my pen from eBay.
my BIGGEST tips – plan it on paper, lightly draw it on your board in pencil and have a pack of baby wipes ready – they are the BEST for cleaning up chalky mistakes!!
so here is the finished board!! i LOVE it!!! its going to be leaning against the wall next to the venue entrance. our venue is a converted barn so i think it will look awesome!!
