My first DIY project in the new house! My first DIY project in the new house!

My first DIY project in the new house!






Whoop! I finished up my first DIY project in this house! One that involves tools and paint and stain (I love working with Minwax on these projects!)...it felt good to get my hands busy again! (At least on something other than opening boxes!)
There's a large wall next to our garage door that was just calling for something big. I've had this project in mind for months, really since we first decided to buy and finish up this house. This one is a total repeat (with a little extra detail) from our last house and it won't be the last project I do over in this home!:
Chalkboards are such a cute and easy DIY and that's why I keep sharing them with you! This is a GREAT weekend project -- I knocked out over a couple days and it took me a few hours. This is a perfect starter project for those of you who are dipping your toe into the DIY/tool pond. 
First up, I used my level to mark a big box on the wall: 
I wanted the box to be centered on the wall, so I kept the lines the same distance from either side: 
There's no need to tape off the lines. Just use your roller and paint -- you'll be covering up the edges later anyway:

You can find the chalkboard paint at any hardware store. It comes in quarts and lasts forever.
Here's a quick tip -- place your paint supplies in baggies in between coats! Mine last for days if I wrap them up well enough:
I did two coats total but it just depends on the coverage -- make sure you don't see the wall color peeking through: 
While I waited on the paint to dry I started the next phase of the project -- the stain! These are the products I used for this one: The Provincial color has become a favorite of mine over the past year or so. It's a great in between brown -- not too dark. And since I use pine a lot because it's such a deal, Provincial always looks great on it. 
I can't stress enough how important it is to precondition your wood. I didn't do this much till a few years ago and I'd get inconsistent coverage when I didn't use it. This really does help to create a good base for your stain. Just brush or wipe it on your wood and wipe off any excess. You can stain immediately after: 
I usually use a foam brush to apply stain but lately I've liked the ease of wiping it on instead. You'll definitely want to wear gloves if you do this, as it gets messy! 
I love that I can really work the stain into the wood this way. I just dip the rag in and rub on:

I let the wood dry well and then cut it down to the sizes I needed. This is were I went old school! I still can't find my saw -- I'm pretty sure it was lost in the move. (Such a large, heavy item to get lost in the shuffle though, so I'm still hoping it turns up.)
I had to use my trusty miter box and saw for the cuts: 

This is the one I use and I've had it for years! The wood I used for the frame is lattice trim from Menards: 
It's super easy to cut. I love that you don't need big time tools to accomplish this project!

Before you use a...
