Default Beer Chalkboard

Any idea where to get one of these? I pulled the picture from the Perkilcs thread (which I am going to be getting). The chalkboard is classy and would dig having something like that...so far I havent found any.

I plan on making one with the above shown cans. (Ive already done a few kegs).

Question - what would be the ideal material to use this one? I know you can spray just about any surface with it, but taking into consideration weight, durability, malleability, whatever, what would be the ideal surface to do this on?

as long as you prime it, preferably with a good primer such as metal or automobile primer, your good to go. Wood, metal. You quite possibly could buy a mirror and do it on that (with a glass primer). if you properly abraid and PRIME the surface, you can do anything...

Damnit, I thought the kegging system was going to the last thing I needed to complete my homebrew set-up.

Wow, I didn't know that spray-on chalkboard stuff existed.

A whole new world of possibilities awaits me...

I sprayed a piece of white board with the chalkboard paint. It made a nice smooth surface for the chalkboard.

I'd look at MDF too--it's relatively smooth and should adhere with the paint ok too...

That's a good idea--probably much lighter than my MDF idea too.
