a crafty washboard chalkboard.

Remember the really cool vintage washboard that I picked up last summer at a garage sale?

Well, turned out that my sister really, really loved it.  And she wanted it turned into a chalkboard for her craft room.  Even though I had purchased it to hang in the Q Branch, I do already have one on the wall in there.  The one I have is not suitable for a chalkboard, but I definitely don’t need another chalkboard in that room.

So … this way cooler washboard had to go to Debbie.

But first I sanded the wood where the chalkboard would be to make it nice and smooth, and then I painted on a couple coats of Rustoleum’s black chalkboard paint.

I added a little craft-y title just in case she doesn’t get around to writing anything on it right away.

Now it will be the perfect addition to her craft room.

  1. Yep, I love it. Right now it is just sitting in the craft room. May wait until we buy a house this summer before I hang it.

  2. I really do love this makeover. Some transformations I’ve seen with vintage washboards seem a bit “tortured” on the way to the final destination – but this actually works! Well done.
