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 have been working hard to create a new clean and organized space and with that comes all kinds of fun DIY and craft projects! Today I am sharing one of my favorites, my Tree Stump Chalkboard
This post may contain affiliate links. See full disclosure here.
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 favorite 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. It just wouldn’t quite cover the bark edges quite right.
So, 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 in the back to hang on the wall!
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!
