Hey Guys! I’m excited to be welcoming some contributors to EC2 Blog! We haven’t had contributor blog posts in a while, and I love sharing creative ideas from other awesome people, so I’m glad we’re back at it with today’s DIY Chalk Paint Clipboard! Let me introduce you to Alisa and Rachel, better known as Ray & A Blog.
Alisa, is actually part of the East Coast Creative team- she’s one of my creative assistants, and she’s a super talented illustrator and graphic artist! Together, Ray and A have a young, fresh blog that you should definitely check out!
Now, let’s get to today’s awesome crafty contribution!
This quick and easy DIY is the perfect combination of organization meets cute home office decor! Heck, this can even be your new after work de-stressor, so doodle away!
Here’s what you’ll need to make your very own chalk paint clipboard!
MATERIALS: Clipboard | Chalk paint | Brush | Metallic paint/paint market (optional) | Chalk
Begin by painting the entire front of the clipboard with the chalk paint. Be sure to get underneath the clip! Allow each coat to dry for about 20 min before doodling. Two or three coats make for a strong, thick surface to draw on! Once the board is dry, let your imagination fly! Use this clipboard as a calendar, to-do list, or a place to store your daily reminders!
We painted the sides and back of the clipboard metallic gold for that popular luxe look everyone seems to be going for these days…
Get inspired with a motivational quote!
Use your clipboard as a to-do list, guaranteed you won’t forget to get milk this way…
Easiest calendar ever, and fully customizable if we do say so ourselves.
Clipboards already have hardware attached, so your project is ready to be hung, just tack up a nail, and you’ve got yourself a new piece of wall art!
So what are you waiting for? Go grab a clipboard and start painting now!
Use #rayandablog so we can see your creations! We’d love to see your take on this DIY!
Such a cute and simple idea! This would definitely inspire me to practice writing with chalk more (I’m awful at it!)
You should note that it is “chalkboard” paint to be used, not “chalk” paint (as in Annie Sloan). Also, I’ve never used chalkboard paint, but I thought you had to rub chalk all over it before writing on it to prevent ghosting.
I find this one simple and interesting! I would love to try this. I am free this Saturday so I guess I would give it a go. 🙂
