Chalkboard for the Babe!

I can't believe I might actually have some weekly posts. Go me!!!  I have had this project done for over a year now but have not had a chance to post pics. My husband made this beautiful chalkboard for my daughter before she was born. We just used some plywood, some trim and chalkboard paint to put it together. You can really use anything to make a chalkboard. I wanted something custom fit because I was huge pregnant and I didn't have time nor the energy to go to garage sales to find a frame. I am pretty happy with how it all turned out!


I made the bunting to drape over the top. I will have to do a tutorial on that someday. It is easy squeezy to make! 


These chalk holders are made from cheap gold/brass cabinet door handles. I saw this idea on Pinterest forever ago. I am sorry I can't take the credit for this idea. You can find the handles at Lowes or any home improvement store.

I painted the handles using Krylons Ocean Breeze spray paint from Walmart and then used Gorilla Glue to attach them to the chalkboard.
