Summer Issue DIY Weddings Magazine {Feature} DIY Chalkboards

I always love waking up to an email letting me know that latest issue of DIY Weddings Magazine is up and ready for purchase. Especially when I have a DIY project in it!

Since summer is just around the corner, I thought it would be a great idea to show a project I have been working on for the summer, chalkboards. Chalkboards are such great additions to your ceremony and reception. Their are an inexpensive and easy way to add a unique touch.

 Not only are they functional for the wedding, but you can use them around the house or to document other life events. I use chalkboards all the time to document my son’s milestones month to month, welcome messages for overnight guests and on display in our kitchen for a little extra holiday spirit.

What is great about doing them yourself is you can use what ever shape and size you want. I found the ones for this project at Michael’s. 
These are the materials I use when making chalkboards. There are many options to choose from and you may find something that works a little better. I find that using primer first allows the chalkboard paint to go on smoothly and look flawless. I am also very particular about safety and use a mask and gloves but those are really optional.
