For starters, the combination of Nature green and Grapefruit pink gave this rustic wall keychain a real punch. And with spring just around the corner, these two Colorantic colors will give your furniture a sunny, vintage feel! That’s why today I’m presenting you with my completely recycled chalkboard, reminiscent of spring!

Not to mention that you can recycle your old objects and give them a second life with chalk paint, which adheres well to all surfaces. And here’s what we used to create it.

First, the preparation

Firstly, all surfaces need to be cleaned to help the paint adhere. And Colorantic varnish cleaner and make-up remover removes all dirt and impurities, such as oil or other greasy substances that may have settled on the surface. Then leave on for 15-20 minutes and wipe off.

And once the surfaces to be painted are completely dry, you can sand them with the Colorantic sanding block. Also, for this project, a primer wasn’t necessary because I wanted to bring out the wood underneath for a vintage boho look, and it wasn’t a difficult surface to adhere to.


Then apply the colors and create the Boho effect.

Grapefruit color was then applied to the entire surface to be painted. Leave to dry for an hour between coats. Nature green was chosen to highlight the corners and darken the sides. And just one coat was enough.

Leave to dry for another hour, then sand all over to achieve the desired effect.
Then, press a little harder and longer to bring out the color of the wood.


Chalkboard creation

Then a panel was inserted behind the wooden frame, and painted with the color Nuit, transforming it into a chalkboard. Because all Colorantic paints can be used for chalkboards.

But if you’re doing a larger surface they also have their chalkboard paint which is more liquid so it’s optimal for larger projects!

In fact, three coats of paint are recommended, as well as light sanding between each coat and rubbing chalkboard chalk all over the last coat! Then simply wipe off to start using it.


Lately the finish

And Colorantic natural beeswax was applied all over the frame (do not apply to the painting). Then leave it to dry for a few days and hang it in your hallway!

Finally, once it’s nice and dry, you can hang your keys on it, and even write a little note!
