If you are like me, you have seen fabulous chalkboard walls all over Pinterest. I love, love the versatility of chalkboard walls and knew I wanted one in our kitchen. Today, I will tell you about both.
It is absolutely incredible what she can do with chalk! Anyhow, I thought I would share how I transferred my image into chalkboard art.
It is my gift to you: I took my ruler and went over the lines with a pencil just to make the lines a little easier to see. In order to figure that out, I used this equation. Then I just divided my box into evenly spaced lines, creating boxes 8 wide by 8 tall.
The hard part is over! Next, I just kept looking at my sheet of paper that I had folded up and, box by box, began to fill in my drawing.
The grid lines help you to tackle your drawing little by little, ensuring you keep a good scale. On some of the areas that are a little trickier, I outlined it in dots before I filled it in with a good chalk line. This is a magical trick! It works so well! I continued to fill in the rest of my drawing.
I had to ignore all of those little perfectionist voices in my head and just draw the darn thing.
Trust me, you are your worst critic. That is the beauty of chalk, you can tweak it as much as you need to.
When I filled in my letters, I just drew a little with the chalk and then smudged it, nice and evenly. After I finished with all of my lettering, I went back and tweaked everything a little to get it the way I wanted….
Again, I used the dotting technique. When I was happy with my drawing, I went back through and used baby wipes to erase my grid lines. You could use whatever you want here… wet Q-Tips, wet rag, etc. Once I was done erasing my grid lines, I added a quick border.

If you want to keep it from getting smudged, just lightly spray it with hairspray. It will help your drawing resist smudging and washes right off with a little soapy water! I hung it back on my wall in the entry way.
