A few weeks ago I mentioned on my Facebook page that after months of searching, I’d finally found the perfect piece to finish a project – and it was in our garage of all places! So rewind to Christmas 2011, Phillip and I helped put together a few stockings for a local non-profit called Connecting Caring Communities. One of the items we made for the stockings was a miniature chalkboard. Once the stocking were assembled, I had a few chalkboards left over and added them to my supply pile, knowing I would use them for something someday.
In February we moved into this house and I knew I wanted the guest bath to be ocean/beach themed. I immediately thought of my 4 lonely, miniature chalkboards and began my hunt for some type of wood/frame/statement piece to mount them on. That brings us to last week, we were out of drop cloths and I was rummaging through the garage trying to find something to paint on and that’s when I saw it, a scrap piece plywood that was the perfect length and height.
I set to work right away, and similar to my DIY ladder, I used a cloth to ‘wash’ on a rough coat of white paint.
I then turned to my handy dandy glue gun and attached each board.
It still looked a little bare so after running through a couple of other options, I decided all it really needed was a little paint.
The rest of my beach bathroom renovation is coming next week when Phillip’s parents will be visiting us from the great state of Florida! Hideous wall paper – your days are numbered, you’re going down!
