Tape off the 2 inches you marked off on one side. Paint lines down the pencil marks with your red paint (or another color of your choosing). Try to make even strokes but they don't have to be perfect, you'll be making them off and painting over the edges with black chalkboard paint in a minute.

Step 4:

With the thin masking tape, tape off those straight lines again down the middle of your painted grid. Press down firmly with tape so paint won't leak under.
