Have you eer found a $.50 cent piece of particle board and had a vision? Well hopefully I am not the only one but I did find a $.50 cent board that is about 11 X 14 inches at a thrift store. I made a chalkboard for Adrienne’s room which she loved.
Project: DIY Kid’s Chalkboard
Time: 10 minutes of painting, 1 day to dry.
Drawer handle (found at Hobby Lobby for $1 on sale)
Chalkboard Paint and Foam Brush
Metallic Paint (for the chipboard letters)
Gorilla Glue (Use the white glue, I used the regular Gorilla Glue and forgot it swells up into an orange eye sore)
Jewels (to bedazzle where the Gorilla Glue made uglies)
Crop-a-dile (to punch holes for the ribbon hanger)
Ribbon (long enough to hold the chalkboard)
Mod Podge (to adhere the letters onto the board)
Cost: $1.50 + Supplies I already had
Drawer handle to hold the chalk, notice the glue puffed up so I painted over the dry glue.
- Coat the board with chalkboard paint, let dry inbetween intervals.
- Paint the chipboard letters with paint, allow to dry.
- Once the board is dry, coat with chalk (on it’s side) and wipe clean.
- Glue the letters on, I used Mod Podge to put the letters on.
- Glue the drawer handle that will hold the chalk, upside down, with Gorilla Wood Glue, allow to dry.
- Take a crop a dile and punch two holes on the sides evenly to hold the ribbon.
- Thread the ribbon through to make a hanger, done!
