DIY Faux Chalkboard Background

So if you were here yesterday you know that my goal for this month is to make my blog photography better. Especially my food photography because let's face it, that's what I put up on this here blog most of the time. And to help make my scrumptious dishes look even more scrumptious, I made this really easy peasy photo backdrop. 


Seriously, y'all, this is the easiest Pinterest project I've ever attempted. All you need for this....as the above photo suggests is chalk and one of those handy dandy black foam boards. Then it's a simple two step process. 

Step One: Gently rub light circles around the surface of the board with the side of your chalk. Make sure not to press too hard or there'll be scratches. 

Step Two: After you've graffitied your board, use an old rag to blend the chalk and give it that slate-y chalkboard look. 


Obviously, this is absolutely THE easiest backdrop tutorial you could get. And it seriously cost me all of 5 bucks. Long story short, you will probably be seeing this background come up a lot in the next few recipe posts! 

What Pinterest project have you tried recently?
