I've had a real soft spot in my heart for creating things for the home these days. Here is a simple chalkboard and frame DIY to give your walls a touch of personal character...
Supplies: wooden board, chalkboard paint, spray paint, large hemp or rope, chalk, sticks/branches.
Pantry Supplies: scissors, paintbrush, wood glue.
First, you'll paint your board with the chalkboard paint. While it's drying, begin spray painting all of the branches/sticks. After they're dry, put them in the form of a frame; 2 or 3 for each side. Make sure before you begin attaching the ends that it is the size of your board. Once you've formed it into the frame you would like, take the hemp and begin securely wrapping it around all four corners. Then, apply wood glue all along the edge of your board and place facing down onto the frame. Let it dry for an hour or two.
Once it's dry, all you have left to do is write something sweet! Hope your day is nothing but wonderful.
