Hi! My name is Eva and I blog over at Tales of the Scotts.
I'm a stay-at-home momma to two very busy little people. I'm a pastor's wife. I love creating and blogging. Over at my blog, you'll find crafts of all sorts, scrapbooking, sewing, a few recipes and funny stories of my kiddos. Heather so nicely featured me on her Friday Feature series earlier this year. It was my first time being featured and I was so thankful she did. So, today I'm here to show you a chalkboard I created from a cabinet door.
We recently celebrated my daughter's 1st birthday. We threw her a simple Pink Lemonade party. (You can see the party post here). We had a budget so I did a few DIY projects for the party to make it special.
Today I'm showing you how I turned a cabinet door into a chalkboard!
I used some chalkboard paint for my Bathroom Message Board recently so I have chalkboards on the brain now.
Here are the steps I took: 1. Someone gave me several cabinet doors so all I did was remove the door. 2. I took it outside to sand. 3. You can see a small hole in the door where a handle was supposed to go. I was going to buy some hole filler but didn't want to spend the extra money so I'll show you below how I covered up that hole. 4. All sanded and taped, ready to paint. 5. I used some flat light pink paint that I received for free. 6. All painted (I did 2 coats) and ready to paint the middle with chalkboard paint. I forgot to take a picture of this step but I just followed the instructions on the chalkboard paint bottle and did two coats.
And here it is all finished! Sarah's Lemonade Stand.
I used this as a focal point outside as guests arrived.
Here's what I did to cover up the hole. I made some Fabric Yo Yo's and attached them with double sided tape so I could change this up if I wanted to. I would have done a tutorial but it was my first time making them and didn't know if I'd mess them up. :-) But I followed this tutorial. I really think these are adorable and will definitely be making more yo yo's.
So, I went from this cabinet door to this chalkboard. I really love how it came together. What I love is that I can change it up if I want. After her party, it will go in her room but if I ever find that I could use it elsewhere, I can just repaint and add some different embellishments.
This is an easy way to repurpose something you may already have!
Thank you so much for having me Heather! I had a great time!
