- within the length of the coffee bar (the buffet)
- within a few inches from the ceiling
- within a few inches above the coffee maker
I then figured out how big the trim was and measured in to figure out exactly how much of the wall needed to be painted. Once I penciled out my lines I started painting with some chalkboard paint directly onto the wall. I simply went roughly a half of an inch passed my pencil lines when painting because I knew that the trim would cover the unevenness. I applied two coats.
After multiple washes I got the look that I was going for.
We bought the chalkboard building supplies at Home Depot…
- 4 pieces of trim slightly larger than the sizes I needed
- white putty
to fill in the nail holes
- 4 square pieces for the corners
From there both of the side pieces were added.
nails in further than the actual wood. I then grabbed the white putty and applied it to
all of the holes, and then wiped off the extra with a wet paper towel.
Everything came together great!
