Football Field Chalkboar

Field Chalkboard Description:

Turn your coffee table into a field chalkboard and allow your guests to draw out their own plays!

Difficulty (on a scale of 1 - 3 hammers):

Time: about 2 hours once you have the materials and tools. Allow extra time for paint to dry.

Supplies:

  1. Cut the plywood to fit your coffee table.
  2. Apply one coat of primer.
  3. Apply 2-3 coats of chalkboard paint.
  4. Finish rough edges of board by wrapping duct tape.
  5. Draw lines for football field with pencil and yardstick.
  6. Use paint marker and yardstick to go over the pencil lines. Take care not to let marker on the yardstick smear on to the board. Also, do not shake the marker without the cap, as paint might splatter.
  7. Number yard lines with vinyl stickers. You might want to use the letter O for the zero, if you don't have enough zeros.
  8. Protect your table from scuffs with an old tablecloth. Place board on table and let your guests use chalk to draw out their own plays. (Rough up the sharp edge of the chalk first to avoid scratching your table like we did to ours!) Wipe clean with damp cloth after use.
