Chris laid down newspaper:
I sprayed three rounds of the chalkboard paint allowing for 40 minutes between each coat and once it was dry I removed the tape:
Cut the new molding into the necessary sizes:
Affixed the new frame, and FINITO!!!
I purchased white high gloss spray paint and a corresponding clear coat thinking that I wanted the frame to be solid white. However, since our kitchen has yet to be completed and that will be where the board hangs I decided to leave it as is for the moment. Who knows, I might ultimately decide to stain it instead! Oh, and I still have to show you it's magnetic power! That will come next.
