My Sisters Wedding :: DIY Chalkboards

As many of you know, my sister recently got married.  There were a few projects for the wedding I did that I’ll share over the next little while.

One was chalkboards! I love chalkboards (as I’ve said before).  They can be used in so many different ways and are effective, sweet and fit the theme of the wedding perfectly.  Here are 2 of the 4 chalkboards that I had made for the wedding.

This one was displayed at the entrance of the park where they got married to direct guests down to the ceremony site.

This was at the back of the seating to encourage people to sit together and not worry about choosing a side but rather to choose a seat.

To make the chalkboards, my husband bought 1/2″ plywood which he cut into 2’x3′ pieces.  I primed the board and then painted them with 2 coats of chalkboard paint.  He cut baseboard for me, which I glued around the edges for the boarder.  It took about a day to do so that the paint was dry, but it was a very simple project and had a big impact!
