I'm going to be honest with you, this is not what I had originally planned.
This is what I had planned.
My chalkboard is made out of plywood and a wall panel.
I purchased the plywood for $3.87 and the wall panel for $12.97 from my local Home Depot. I spray painted the plywood chalkboard and the panel metallic. It looked to be a great idea until the gorilla glue (that I used to stick these two together) melted through and made a huge mess. In an attempt to save my project, I outlined the inner frame with silver glitter glue. Big mistake. Huge.
After hanging the chalkboard onto the wall today, I knew I couldn't leave it as is.
So, when in doubt, use burlap!
Using scissors and my hot glue gun, I was able to transform my once-metallic/silver glitter-glue chalkboard into a burlap beauty!
Oh, and some flowers for additional cuteness.
Just need to finish up a few things on my gallery wall, but I'm very pleased with how the chalkboard looks. Stay tuned.
Have a great day!
