New to the area, a few weeks ago I went looking for the local craft store. We have all the basics near our new house but the closest craft store is 20 minutes away. Crazy right? (Clearly I am a city girl.)
I spotted these wood slices and clear Martha Stewart chalkboard paint and had to give them a try. My handwriting is not calligraphy worthy so I opted for text using stamps. I have been hunting for pieces to make our new home feel our own and these will be perfect in our half bath.
Round wood slices
6 nails (I used a 7/8" roofing nail)
Alphabet Stamps (I used vintage stamps)
Black Chalk Marker
Brush the surface clean. Paint three coats of clear chalkboard paint spacing 1 hour between each coat. Let dry for 24 hours. Nail a piece of clothesline to wood slice . Use chalk marker to coat alphabet letter and stamp onto wood. To change your design clean the board with soap and water or a little acetone.
Love, joy, peace rooted in grace. These are things I hope we can encourage in our kids. And looking at this while getting ready for school will be a sweet reminder.
