Chalkboard Note Pad
Having a block of wood leftover from the patio table top and not being able to throw it away, it sit on the kitchen counter for a week! 🙂
I know I can think of some use for it???
A paperweight? Too expected.
Use it to balance a table?? I don’t have a table THAT unbalanced.
Make a sign?? Yea, for a very short word.
And then I saw the chalkboard paint!!
Aha! A chalkboard note pad!
I can add burlap around the edge like I did on the sides of the blogger saw blade sign.
So I start painting the top only. Hey, the sides will be covered with burlap, why waste paint?
I’m starting to sound a bit too frugal!
Especially when I laid the burlap across the side and realize you could see through the burlap to the wood. So I painted the four sides too!
I used a white craft glue for the burlap. It does dry clear! I’ve learned for this technique to work best make sure to glue right up to the edge so the burlap will not fray any more than you want it to.
I do realize hot glue will not hold twine on a piece of chalk for the long haul, but temporary, until I need another piece of chalk this will work find.
The other end of the twine is thumbtacked to the side of my chalkboard note pad.
Now I’ve got to go call mom!
