Refurbished Chalkboard

It’s been such a long long time that this chalkboard has been in storage. We got it used and refurbished it wayyyy before Zoey was born. What used to be an old, outdated, and beaten up chalkboard now looks more modern, baby-chic, and sooo Zoey approved!

When we first got this chalkboard, it came with an ugly green board and beaten up wood color base. I painted the green board black using 3 coats of black chalkboard paint, which you can use to literally turn ANY surface to an instant chalkboard. The wood base was painted white with a semi-gloss interior wall paint.

  1. We have a seriously outdated one in our storage as well – I’m pretty sure my mom had it when she was a kid! Refurbishing is a great idea! I’ll have to pull my own and see what kind of shape it’s in ;)

    • All you need is some chalkboard paint and interior paint to spruce it up! Have fun refurbishing! Best, Kellie

  2. I just can’t get over how ridiculously cute she is! I’m loving that chalkboard too, what a great way for Zoey to express herself!

  3. It’s great that Zoey’s addicted to the chalkboard instead of the ipad! I love her expression when she is having a snack.

    • Ha! Unfortunately, she is wayyy more addicted to her ipad! I guess it’s a technological world nowadays. But she uses educational apps, does that make it better?! Have a great weekend!

      • oh dear! I am not too sure, considering that I know nuts about parenting. But I do think the 3d world is better for kids than 2d. Well, at least the chalkboard took some of her attention away from the ipad.
