Blackboard for Inspirational messages

Happy Wednesday everyone!

You may have seen the video i created during the revamping of our bedroom? Well in the video you’ll see i left the painted blackboard section on the wall.  We decided to keep it and build a frame around it.

Here it is all painted and ready for chalking inspiration!

Mr. G sanded the part of the wall where the wood was going to sit and then applied a thick bead of Nail Glue or Liquid Nails.

He had pre-cut some pieces of pine and painted them up before pressing then onto the nail glue.

blackboard_nails

Because the boards were heavy Mr. G had to add a couple of nails to prop up the wood while the nail glue was drying.

blackboard_corner

He added decorative corners for that “Je ne sais quoi” look Smile.  Notice there is a tiny nail propping up the decorative corner? Then he glued on all of the other pieces.

blackboard_paint

Mr. G touched up the blackboard paint to make it all look pristine and new once more!

blackboard_finished

Hooray it’s done! Now all i have to do is buy some liquid chalk to embellish and write the first inspirational quote.

You can do the same thing in your home – you don’t have to make your own frame like we did (royal we!) – you can always buy a thrift store frame and put it over a painted blackboard patch on the wall!

Did you get the chance to check out my solo retreat video i created the other day?

Love, Violette xo

      Thanks Wendy – it’s pretty neat that you can create any colour you want. Thanks for the link! I guess if you are renting you can’t really paint a wall with chalkboard paint? My guess is that it would be difficult to paint over it?

      Love, Violette
