My sister-in-law and her family moved into a new house recently, and I wanted to give Bryce something special for his new room. But what?
I saw this idea on Pinterest:
But it wasn't very boy-ish. Then I saw this idea:
And I realized I could combine them!
Chris already had chalkboard paint from his laundry room redo so all I needed was high-gloss white spray paint.
I took an older cookie sheet and sprayed it with the white paint. After it was dry (I helped it out with the hair dryer.) I painted the inside of the pan with the chalkboard paint.
It's difficult to see, but I printed out the letters of Bryce and cut them out. I placed them at the bottom on the tray and painted over them with the chalkboard paint.
When it was all dry, I brushed a piece of chalk over the letters and they really popped out.
I made magnets from some coke bottle tops.
I hot glued white grosgrain ribbon to make a hanger.
I thought it needed one more thing so I glued a magnet onto a clothespin for an added touch.
I think Bryce liked it because we hung it in his new room right after he opened it.
Happy new house, Bryce!
