Did I forget to mention that if you LEAVE A COMMENT FOR US we will pick a winner, send them a box plus a bunch of goodies so that you can create your own?!?!
I decided to go old school and paint slanted stripes on my board. I kicked it up a notch by adding magnets to the back so I could stick it to my fridge. I tossed in some painted wood clothespins (my latest obsession) and glued magnets on them so that I could clip notes, coupons and photos.
This is Stephenie's chalk board which is lovely....and very feminine. You rocked it Stephenie!
To make mine,
here's what you'll need:
1 chalkboard with frame
Several colors of acrylic paint
Glue on magnets
Several wood clothespins
Glue magnets on the back of the board and on one side of the clothespins using E-6000
great ideas. I love those magnet clothespins!ReplyDelete
I love the matching clothespin magnets! Adorable and so functional.ReplyDelete
Love both. One is very elegant and would work in my office and the other my grandkids would love to keep their notes organized.ReplyDelete
You added those magnets which gives you an A+! (Stepenie just gets an A)ReplyDelete
love the color...and you can take the clothespins apart to paint so as not to get paint on the metal springs. i use them to hang my laundry and they come apart all the time. i like the pretty frame too, but the colors really jump out at me.ReplyDelete
Your chalkboard is very colorful, and I really like the addition of the clothespins. Clever man.
So vibrant and eye-catching! Just what I'd need for a reminder board on the fridge!ReplyDelete
I love how different it is from Stephenie's!
Yours is very cute- bright and cheery ! Would be great in a kids room, laundry room, kitchen -- anywhere!ReplyDelete
Steph was tricky taking hers apart and now I know it can be done ;)
Two totally different takes on the same chalkboard!
Well done to you both !
Love this....I may need to make one for my fridge!!ReplyDelete
Great project! It's interesting to see completely different projects from the same materials.ReplyDelete
what a nice idea! I guess it's cheap and to me it's a nice gift for next Christmas =)ReplyDelete
Love the colors! Nice and bright ;)ReplyDelete
Love the two different versions! yours would be great to keep in my craftroom for instant inspiration!ReplyDelete
Just need to mention that not only is your chalkboard fabulous, but those colored clothes pins are so darn fun too!ReplyDelete
Very cute! Love the idea of using clothes pins as clips!ReplyDelete
LOVE the magnetic painted clothes pins to match!ReplyDelete
Love the colors! The clothes pins are so clever ;)ReplyDelete
