With school just around the corner, this DIY blackboard might be a fun project to get the kids involved with over the weekend. It’s also a great idea if you’re afraid to paint an entire wall with chalkboard paint. It is quite a committment because it isn’t easy to paint over. Best of all you can move it around wherever you need it – making for a portable piece as your family grows. Get the how-to over at The Merrythought.
