I’v been in the middle of transitioning Jack’s bedroom, and by that I mean slowly piecing his room together with simple elements of design. Before hand his room was just a whole lot of toys and pieces of furniture that were good enough for storage, we never really had a specific theme. After building a pretty cool industrial shelf, I knew it would be the perfect piece for Jack’s bedroom. Since then, I have been slowly adding, changing, and creating a theme wrapped around the industrial shelf! Here’s a little project I have been working on…
And guess where these wire baskets are originally from!
DIY Chalkboard Tags
Step 1: Start with a piece of wood that is approximately 4″x 8″ x 1/4″.
Step 2: Cut every 2″ and you will have 4 pieces that are 2″ x 4″ x 1/4″. Step 3: Once each piece is cut, measure or eyeball a hole on each end and use a drill to create a hole for the wire or string that you plan to secure tag in place. Step 4: Sand the edges, corners and surface.
The tags are ready for some chalkboard paint. Step 5: Begin painting one side, let dry approximately 20 minutes, flip and paint other side. I did 3 coats in total. Step 6: Use a q-tip to paint the inside of the hole.Step 7: Once your chalkboard labels are dry, approximately 24 hours, cut wire or string to secure tags in place.Step 8: Attach and write on the DIY chalkboard tags…Ta-da, your finished!
Now Jack’s stuffed animals have a home! (And Jack is totally photobombing above)
