My husband made the chalkboard for me after the fact that I couldn’t find anything remotely similar to what I had in mind. The simplest things are always the hardest to find, don’t you think?!
It was a fairly easy DIY project. Hubby’s no carpenter but if you have right tools handy, it’s relatively easy to put together :)
Here’s a rather surreptitious shot I took of him working on it. As you can see, all it is is a wooden frame with a piece of thin wooden board nailed on top. It’ll help if you had a sander to sand down the rough edges. Otherwise, manually go over the edges with sand paper, that should work too. After that’s done, I painted 3 coats of blackboard paint over the entire board. Pretty simple to make huh? :)
Oh and buy a chalk texta instead of chalk. It’s a lot easier to work with. I bought mine from Spotlight. They also come in a range of different sizes…and colors too, if you prefer something a little out of the norm :)
I’m glad to hear my blog is keeping you entertained! Thanks for the complement :)
