Then I covered the entire board with a couple coats of white chalk paint.
While the paint was drying I created two printables, one for each side of the board. You can get these FREE Printables in my Resource Library (for personal use only). Make sure to print the printables in reverse image. Then I applied ModPodge to the image side of the printable and placed it face down on one side of the plywood board. I repeated this process for the other printable on the other side of the board.
