I'll start off...
Folding Chalkboard Backdrop for a family friends wedding
• Backdrop was made from 3 sheets of 1/4" MDF by 36" wide by 80" tall
• Chalkboard was created from the Rust-Oleum Chalkboard spray paint. I like the spray... goes on more even than paint.
• The front framed was 3/4" x 1-3/4" and the back was 3/4" x 3-1/2" Western Red Cedar
• The chalkboard backdrop is quite flimsy, so it was sandwiched in-between the lumber frame. 
• The cedar frame was finished in two coats of a clear, polyurethane finish by Varanthane. (Silver can) 
• Used a small 4" roller to apply the polyurethane. Much easier to apply over the rough wood surface.
• Use a standard door hinge for the pivot points. When it's time to take down and transport, the pins can be popped out.
The chalkboard backdrop worked awesome for photographs and for hiding unsightly parts of the room.
