Back-To-School Wooden Crate | Easy DIY ProjectAugust 06, 2015
Thanks so much for stopping by to check out my latest DIY project! This was really easy to do, and didn't take too long. That's a win-win in my book!
I created this for my Back-To-School party, and thought you might like to try this project yourself.
I started off with an old wooden crate that I had laying around my garage.
I put the paint inside of a snack cup, and put some paper down, to catch any messes.
I started by brushing on the paint, on the small wooden slats.
I continued painting the entire crate. You don't have to use a sponge brush. It did apply pretty quickly, and that happened to be the only brush I could find quickly.
The paint dried quickly, and I started to write on the chalk surface, with my chalk pen. I was making little lines to represent a ruler.
Please note: My lines are not to scale! Just for fun.
Once I completed my ruler, I went down to the second slat, and chalk painted part of the alphabet. You can also paint another ruler, or even leave it blank. That's the beauty of a DIY project.
My chalk pen didn't show up as vivid as I had hoped. That's where the real chalk came in handy. I just wrote over the existing marks, and it looked better.
Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to check out how I used this project in my Back-To-School Party Ideas!
