Select a wallspace to install your Chalkboard For Menu. It is best for the screws to be fixed into studs or a solid wall. Mark the center of the left hole and drill a pilot hole.
PLACEMENT + FIXING
Using the allen key supplied, hand screw the custom milled hook into the wall until it is flush and fixed - avoid over tightening causing damage to the screw.
LEVEL + POSITION
Hook a rectangle tile onto the brass screw. Using a level, mark the centre of the right hole, drill another pilot hole and fasten a second brass hook using the allen key.
SPACING + FIXING
Repeat steps 1 and 2 using the square tile, placing it adjacent to the rectangle tile.
SECURING THE TILES
Place the spacer on the rectangle tile. Using this as a guide, fasten the screws in place for the second rectangle and square tiles following steps 1-4. Do this for the remaining tiles to complete your Wall Mounted Chalk Board.
WRITE YOUR TEXT.
Using the stencils and chalk supplied, write your display, menu or message on the tiles of your Chalk Menu Board.
