I always have my eye on the shore when we walk down to the port or to the local beach just hoping to spy an interesting piece that I can lug home. I have hopes of making a couple driftwood log side tables. And while I wasn't THAT motivated, I did manage to create an amazing driftwood framed chalkboard with some recent finds. You might have caught a glimpse of it in my "I Told You So" Cabinet post.
If you love adding natural elements to your decor and are looking for a quick and easy DIY project this one should be it.
- Chalkboard Paint
- Board (the size is up to you)
Break out the chalkboard paint and spray your board. I gave my 32" long board 5 coats of paint.
After the paint is dry, lay out the driftwood pieces layering as you go. Once you're happy with the layout, glue those bad boys down. By the way, this Seal-All adhesive is the shiz!
Once dry, attach a hanging hook (technical name?) to the back. I placed one hook in the center of the board. Depending on the size, you may need to place one hook at each side of the board.
And that's it! This is the perfect little piece to remind ourselves to just breathe, kick back and stop worrying about all the house projects weighing us down.
It's also a great message board for friends and family who stop by. Hint, hint friends and family. Feel free to stop by. :)
So what about you guys? Are you as obsessed with driftwood as I am? Created any driftwood projects of your own? Or are you one of the few who is over the trend?
