Must read if you are planning on adding an outdoor chalkboard wall. Learn from my mistakes.

How to prevent your outdoor chalkboard from rotting. As far as I know there is no exterior chalkboard paint products out there. Please tell me if I’m wrong.

So instead of using chalkboard paint like I did I would make my own using exteriorpaint and tile grout. You can find the recipe from Martha Stewart herself right here. It’s simply 1 cup exterior paint mixed with 2 tablespoons tile grout.

This should ensure that the front of the board stays weather proofed.

Now don’t forget the back of the board. I think that was my biggest mistake. Be sure to cover the back and sides of the board with exterior paint. When I removed my chalkboard the back of it completely fell a part.

I would still add the wood frame to the chalkboard. I think this held the rotting wood together a bit longer. It also prevents the plywood from bending and bowing.
