How to make a Lego blackboard for a child’s room

In this tutorial we show you how versatile and easy to use or blackboard spray paint is. In a few easy steps we’ll create a blackboard for a child’s room and decorate it with Lego pieces. Our blackboard paint in an aerosol is slate black with a matt finish and you can use real chalk or chalk pens on it. In addition it covers well and creates a hard and resilient finish.

As you can see this is a quick and easy project and if you want to see just how easily it all comes together watch the video below. Because it was made by our Spanish colleagues, the title is in Spanish, but don’t worry there is no Spanish spoken in the video!

(1) Paint the perspex – Using the spray blackboard paint we are going to transform the clear perspex into a blackboard. If you are using a frame with glass, you can always remove the glass entirely and spray the board at the back. You want to spray even layers keeping your hand about 25cm from the surafce moving in sweeping motions and not staying in one spot too long otherwise the paint may build up and run.
