This week my in-laws gave me a chalkboard that D had used when he was little. It was not in the best shape, but I was looking forward to bringing it back to life.
I painted on some chalkboard paint. I sadly could not save the frame, so I had to come up with something different.
We do not have access to a lot of tools, so I wanted some cheap wood that was already cut to the perfect size to create a frame. Then it hit me to use yard sticks. They are 50 cents at Walmart. But, before I could do that I had to stop and look at a book with Lou.
Painted them pink and gave them white polka dots using a pencil eraser and fabric.
Then I glued the frame on and had a new chalkboard for the girls. It fits perfectly on the back of their work table. Fun, fun.
Already started my next project. Mae snapped a picture of me working earlier.
So enjoying the weekend.
