I've been meaning to do this outdoor chalkboard project for so long! It was put on the back burner so many times I just forgot about it. But last weekend we got motivated to finish up some projects in our backyard. One trip to the hardware store for a can of paint was all it took, now that's not too hard. The Chickpea helped me slap a coat of primer on a big board we already had, then three coats of chalkboard paint. Yeah, my little helper got board so I did most of it. The hubby mounted it to the fence and I repurposed 2 hooks (they are a little creepy because they are shaped like fingers) to hang 2 chalk buckets. Instant play time, they love it. Now to be an over achiever I also painted the inside of the chicken coop (I should call it a kid coop for now) with the chalkboard paint and recovered the benches inside with new oil-cloth. We're ready for Summer.
