Tree Stump Chalkboard

If you’ve been following for the last few weeks, you know that I am in the middle of a guest room + office update (final reveal shared at Guest Room + Office Makeover Reveal).  I started off here, sharing after a few trips to Goodwill and a rearrangement of ALL the stuff we had jammed in there.  Next, I shared a small project that is going in the updated space.  I made a simple Pom Pom  throw blanket.  And today I am sharing my Tree Stump Chalkboard!

Using the chalkboard paint, I selected a tree ring and used it as my paint border with two or three coats.  I went in roughly 1-2″ from the edge of the stump.  I also gave the raw wood edge a very light white wash.

After the paint had dried, I got out my *Gold Foil Paint Pen and went to town.  I painted the bark tops.  I attempted to use it the paint pen on the side bark portion, but no go.

I found an easy fix.  I turned the tree stump over (so as to not paint the chalkboard portion) and spray painted the edge with gold.

Then it was a simple as hammering in a few picture hanging items.

  1. I have been making some tree stump art myself but, I love how you used this minty green and the gold accents. Lovely! Thanks for sharing your DIY at the party. Theresa @DearCreatives

  2. How did I know this was going to be you when I saw it on the link up?! I’m pretty sure I visit your site every other day because your tiny icons in the link ups are so eye catching and I always love seeing what you’ve created! This is no exception! I’m loving the girly mint and gold mixed with the rustic wood texture!

  3. This is awesome Amy – one of these would be great on my outdoor bar! I love the fresh take from the traditional black chalkboard paint – so pretty. Thanks for the inspiration 🙂

  4. What a great and unique idea! I had no idea you could buy tree stumps from Michaels, lol! They would be neat chargers too, with the names of your guest written on them in chalk paint or even a cute little poem for a kids birthday…the possibilities are endless aren’t they! Thanks for the inspiration 🙂

  5. I absolutely LOVE this. I saw it on your instagram, and liked it right away. The mint with the gold is amazing, and the fact that it is a chalkboard makes it even better.

    So many thumbs up!!
