fun beachy chalkboards made from discarded wooden skim boards
They started like this
I sanded lightly and used chalkboard spray paint
Used white acrylic paint to freehand designs around the edges of both skim boards
I painted each one a little differently
I let them dry for a day then you "prime" them by rubbing chalk all over the surface and wipe off
I'm using this cute bamboo picture molding for a chalk holder
I use picture frame molding for a lot of projects.
and most recently, this giant Butterfly
I toned down the gold finish on the bamboo with paint
then glued and screwed them to the bottoms of the chalkboards....
....so they ended up looking like this
Here is one of the designs and...
I drilled holes in the sides and used rope for a hanger
They would look adorable in a beach house or kid's room.
