After a DIY tiling project, you usually find yourself with a pile of tiles leftover that seemingly have no use.
However, with a bit more creative DIY, you can transform these into mini chalkboards that your children can draw on.
You can also mount them onto the wall as notice boards or as décoraccessories. Simply use a can of Rust-Oleum Chalkboard spray paint to get started.
Rust-Oleum Chalkboard spray paint is the easiest way to add a chalkboard finish on metal, wood, plastic, hardboard, glass or low-gloss ceramic tiles.
Before you spray, you need to make sure that the tile is clean and dry.
Put down newspaper to protect your work surface and spray from a distance of no less than 30 centimetres away.
Spray from left to right in a light even stroke and moving from the top to bottom edges.
The finished surface erases cleanly and can be wiped with detergent and water
Allow the paint to dry for 24 hours and to condition the surface before use, rub the side of a piece of chalk over the entire surface and then wipe off.
