Here it is! My barn wood chalkboard!
The great thing about having a to do list for my husband is that he, unlike me, is not a procrastinator.
He usually gets a smirk on his face when I tell him my ideas…but after it’s done I can tell he is pretty pleased with himself.
And here is how we made this…
Of course I say we because it was my idea, his carpenter skills, my painting skills…and the kids artistic writing skills.
My husband cut a piece of plywood then made a frame on top of it out of old barn wood.
We found some barn wood on our farm and it’s been great for so many projects.
I was happy with how the barn wood corners looked but hubby wasn’t and decided to miter the corners.
I’m not that picky but I have to admit it does look better…the corners are pretty easy to do with a miter box (so he tells me).
He used carpenter glue and nails to hold the barn wood to the plywood.
Now I have a great place to write messages throughout the year…I call on my girls for that!
