Clean the wall with a damp cloth to remove loose debris. Lightly sand the entire wall and wipe with a damp cloth to remove dust.
Using an angled brush, create a full border for your chalk wall that you will next fill in with the roller. Using a roller, fill in the wall with chalkboard paint.
Now it is time to hang the wallpaper. This is the tricky part, but don't worry, just go slow and you'll be able to get it done! I share step-by-step directions for wallpaper hanging success.
Next, you'll need to cut the piece of trim to fit your wall. Then give it a light sand and stain with a color of your choice. The stain simply adds color to the wood and helps bring out the natural grain.
This is the final step! To hang the trim first locate the studs in the wall using a stud finder. Now step back and take in the beauty of your beautiful, new chalk wall!
