I am in love with blackboards, I believe they are such an easy way to change the feel of a room as well as being a great utility for the home. If you are not ready to completely embrace a whole wall of black board, these dinner mats are a great place to start.
Blackboard dinner mats are not only really simple to do, they add a personal touch to the dinner table. Whether it’s a reminder for breakfast or a loving message at dinner time or just a fun activity for the children.
You will need:
*Old or cheap dinner mats.
*Black Board Paint
Take your old dinner mats, the more cringe worthy the pattern the better!
Prep the mats for painting, ensure that are given a good clean and are dry.
Paint away! Two coats of blackboard paint will give ultimate coverage.
Once dry, cover the whole mat with chalk, this will prep the surface and ensure all future chalk drawings come off easily.
Wipe your mats clean, set the table and do some crazy drawing before dinner!
