Blackboards and chalk…..classic really! Simple, old school and stylish!
We made this blackboard last year. It is recycled from 3mm ply (originally a backing board on a book shelf).
Our basic process:
Draw out a pattern for the top, grab your jigsaw and cut the shape you desire!
Grab your hole saw and cut two holes!
Add some tape for hanging. Ours is a strip of hessian (recycled from another project) edged with red heavy weight cotton on the sewing machine.
Add a message! Done!!
