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!

Supplies:
*Tree Stump (i called it a tree ring in the graphic below -- I got mine at Michaels)
brushes

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 (what are those even called?  I have no clue.)

I love the gold edge!
I love the natural material used as a mint chalkboard!
I love Martha Stewart for creating such lovely chalkboard colors!

Have you all used Martha's fun chalkboard colors?  Did you use them on anything fun and crazy like a tree stump?

  21. 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 :)
