Modern Shelf Makeover

Hey, hey!! I'm excited to share my first chalk paint project with you guys today!
I've been wanting to try chalk paint for ages. I mean, being able to paint any surface with little to no prep? That is right up this lazy girl's alley! 

I have so many things I want to paint. I decided to start simple with this solid wood, homemade bookcase.
I am loving the sleek modern look it has now!

Let me show you how I did it...

Tried it Tuesday! #19

It's fair season here at home! We love taking our boys to see the animals, the rides, the night lights, and, of course, a big highlight is the FOOD!

I have several personal favorites at the fair, but a fresh funnel cake is near the top of the list.

Easy Clipboard Wall Art

As my youngest son gets older, he comes home from school with more and more artwork. And he is getting prouder and prouder of his creations! He recently came home with several coloring sheets of dinosaurs which are pretty much his favorite creatures EVER. (See these DIY dinosaur jackets and dinosaur birthday party for reference!)

We decided we needed a place to properly show off his coloring other than the fridge, which is getting a little overcrowded. I came up with this fun Clipboard Wall Art to put in his room so that we can easily display several of his creations at a time and change them out very easily.

I searched high and low for white clipboards to use. I wanted something plain and simple that would not take away from the art. 
Who knew they would be so hard to find!

I finally found these on Amazon. They are white acrylic and came in a pack of 3. I needed 4. Go figure! So I bought 2 sets which turned out fine because the extra two have already been claimed by other members of the household.

I used two 3M Command Picture-Hanging Strips (those little Velcro ones) on the back of each clipboard which made them super easy to hang. I can also easily remove them to change out the artwork then stick them back on the wall.

Follow the directions on the 3M strips to adhere the clipboards to the wall. Add art.
DONE!

I didn't even bother to do any measurements, just eyeballed the clipboards one at a time to hang them. They can easily be slightly adjusted since the Velcro strips don't have to match up exactly on the back of the clipboards.

And I love how clean the white looks! Its make the coloring pages really pop!


Tatertots & Jello, Serenity Now, and other great parties found on my party page.
