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!
*Tree Stump (i called it a tree ring in the graphic below — I got mine at Michaels)
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.
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 used Martha’s fun chalkboard colors? She has mint green, blues, black and more!
