Outside Chalk Board

This is not a new project.   
I actually did it last year but I wanted to share it with you all.
It was such a hit.
I painted a large piece of 1/2 inch AC plywood with chalk board paint. 
(this is the brand I used but in BLACK)
I did 3 coats.  It goes on thick and dries quickly.
It was a fast project.
I then hung it on the back of the garage. 
I also hung an iron plant holder next to it and I filled the terracotta pot with the chalk.
The girls love it.
(so do I, It makes a great photo prop)


  1. What a fun project! I've been feeling rather crafty lately, so I'm itching to do a project! This would definitely be a great one if I had kids...but I don't yet, and don't think my dogs would enjoy it that much lol.

  2. What a great idea!! Would love to do a project like this! My girls love chalk and the slab outside the garage always has mud on it from the gravel road. Now, where to put it????

  3. Love this! For sure storing this one away for the future!

  4. Thanks for stopping by my site Suzi! Followed back! Love this project! The kids have been asking for this. I've been scrolling through your blog and I love it, glad to be your new follower!
