Re-purpose leftover tiles into chalkboards

I like the idea of using leftover tiles from a project to make these easy chalkboards. The kids can use them for drawing, you can mount onto the wall as mini notice boards or as decor accessories. Grab a can of Rust-Oleum Chalkboard spray paint and let's 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. Shake the can well. The finished surface erases cleanly and can be wiped with detergent and water.

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.

Allow paint to dry for 24 hours. To condition the surface before use, rub the side of a piece of chalk over the entire surface and then wipe off.

The chalkboard tile is now ready for use.
