Before I started using the chalk board paint I prepped the plywood/wood wall mount board (see below). Used ASCP Paris Grey, 2 coats and when dry (overnight) Rexall Clear Wax (had it on hand) and buffed, 2 coats, then taped and framed with wax paper before the chalk board paint step.

When finished, cleaned up, dried, chalked and written on I found this to be a fun project and certainly flexible for seasonal displays as well as everyday home uses (notes, lists, greeting...)
Saw many great chalkboard examples at Fieldstone Vintage Market on Saturday - and so I am linking this page to Donna of Funky Junks blog extensive photo and text of the Vintage Market. I went, loved it, took lots of pictures and will be posting some another day. Enjoy Donna's writeup. A chalk board lamp shade seemed pretty unique.
