D.I.Y. Memo Chalkboard

This double-sided chalkboard is an easy way to keep you and your family organized!


Supplies

  • 1 Unfinished Standing Memo Board
  • Americana Chalkboard Paint
  • DecoArt Crafter's Acrylic Paint in Silver Morning
  • Paintbrush
  • Bistro 6mm Chalk Marker
  • Embellishments (optional)

All supplies used for this project can be found at our Bonney Lake store.

  1. Using the paintbrush, apply the silver paint to the base of the memo board.
  2. Then, apply the chalkboard paint to the front and back of the board. 
  3. Let the board dry and it will be ready to use!

Date night dinner for two!
 
Since you can use either side of the board for writing, you can reserve one side as a menu and the other for notes.

Feel free to dress up your chalkboard with embellishments using objects like buttons, beads, flowers, bottle caps, paper, etc. or even choose a different paint color for the base.

Now, if only doing the laundry was as quick as this project...
