One my favorite trends lately is maps. They are everywhere-and I love them all: globes, lamps, paper, pillows, furniture…..and chalk! Today we’re talking about chalk, another trend I absolutely love! We’re sharing how to make a huge chalkboard map and you might be surprised how easy it is!
The big chalkboard is just a huge piece of Masonite that I painted with chalkboard paint. It used to hang in my kitchen (see HERE) before we painted the cabinets, and replaced the flooring, and added a barn door (on the blog soon!) Just follow the directions on the chalkboard paint label for the best results. (Masonite is thin, cheap and pretty light-perfect for a huge chalkboard!)
Next, head over to http://www.mrprintables.com/printable-map-of-the-united-states.html and download the Black and White Map of the U.S. Then put it on a flash drive and take it to Staples and have them print you an engineer print of the map. Have you heard of these engineer prints? They are huge and only $3-$4! They are also only black and white and the paper is quite thin, but they are perfect for lots of projects, including this one 😉
And I am in love! It turned out better than the vision in my mind-love it when that happens ;). What do you think? Super simple right? For more fun map ideas check out our Maps board on Pinterest HERE. Have a great day!!
