You can make an oversized chalkboard for your home, business or school using this easy tutorial. It’s so lightweight almost anyone can lift it and move it around. I wanted to make this large piece for a large blank wall in my studio…. it doubles as artwork and a photo prop. I added two quotes to mine to fill up the space. Total cost of materials was $35.
The piece is just an interior hollow core door…..usually retailing about $20 to $30 depending on the size. The typical sizes in Lowe’s or Home Depot range from 30″x80″ to 36″x80″. We primed ours because I’d been using it as the top of a work table for a while and it needed sanding:

Using it for artwork and want to keep it from smudging? Spray with a coat of Workable Fixatif. To remove the fixatif down the road you’ll just need a light swipe of a damp magic eraser.
