April 04, 2014

Looking to step outside the box? Try this idea by Lindsay from My Creative Days to pump up the style on your plain chalkboard.

This is exciting news!

Sometimes, a black chalkboard won't cut it. Sometimes, a chalkboard calls for a different color. With all the color options at Country Chic Paint, you can make a chalkboard any color you want!For me, I wanted a gray chalkboard. Like I have said before, I love grays and browns together and I wanted to incorporate that color combination in this chalkboard project.To make the chalkboard, I used a wood frame that we had in our garage. I loved that it had a "divider" in it. I thought it would be a great chalkboard for writing notes and lists on.

To start, Hubby cut a piece of wood and nailed it to the back of the frame.

Then, I stained the frame a dark, "Mission Oak" color.

I painted the chalkboard part of it "Hurricane".

I used a white chalk marker to write an Easter message. The white chalk, the "Hurricane" color and the dark, wood stain look so great together!
