INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Let dry completely between painting steps.

  1. Using a tape measure and pencil, measure and mark the desired size of the pegboard. Cut using a saw.
  2. Place the pegboard on newspaper or a tarp, so that any paint that drips through the holes is easy to clean up. Using a 1-1/2" flat brush, paint the pegboard In Grey Storm.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Give the pegboard a second coat of Grey Storm, making sure it is completely covered.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Paint the pegboard with two coats of Clear Chalkboard Coating. (You want to do one coat horizontally and one coat vertically, letting them dry for one hour in between coats.)
    Step 3 Example
  5. Let the Clear Chalkboard Coating cure for 24 hours. Prep it by lightly rubbing a piece of chalk over it on its side, then wiping it clean. Add pegboard hooks, hang up kitchen utensils, and use a chalk marker to loosely doodle around them.
    Step 4 Example

HELPFUL HINTS

Keep wet paper towels on hand to help wipe up drips quickly. Use a wet sponge to erase chalk lines.
