We are 3 friends, who also happen to be moms of 7 boys and 1 cute baby grand-daughter. We love to craft, DIY, cook, remodel, refinish and redo. Pretty much anything crafty we like to do it. We live in Tri-Cities, WA which is pretty much a desert. When you think of Washington most of you are thinking "desert" that can't be so, Washington is so green. Not so much where we are from. But it's a wonderful place to raise our family.
This Chalkboard is really easy to make and super inexpensive. I found an old cupboard door for $1 at our local Habitat for Humanity Restore and already had the spray paint color and chalkboard paint. This whole project probably only cost me $3. SO this is how I did it:
This is the $1 cupboard I found. (Please excuse the Bum. My little man would not get out of the way.) Anyways, this board had an entire white plastic cover casing it, so I just tore it off and it was all wood underneath.
I then taped and spray painted it the color I wanted. (Valspar Almond). When that was dry I sanded the edges and distressed it to look antiquish. I then taped the outside and sprayed on the Chalkboard paint.
This is the finished product! I added a bow for the Holidays, but will probably add some vinyl character to it from my cricut. I haven't decided yet. Super easy and inexpensive.
