DIY chalkboard placemat

- This is a fabulous and easy idea for a "personalized place card" on the table -

What you will need:
- Hard placemat
- Paintbrush
- Chalk
- Primer (I only have tinted purple left over from another project)
- Chalkboard paint (purchased at Home Depot for $21.49 for 887ml)

Paint a layer of primer on the placemat to cure the surface. Apply 2-3 layers of Chalkboard paint onto the hard surface of the placemat. Allow an hour to dry between applying another layer. Wait 3 days for the paint to cure. Gently rub a piece of chalk on its side over the entire surface and then rub off with a dry cloth (this preps the chalkboard surface from permanent chalk mark damage).
