if you know me at all, you know we're always doing projects- having our little newb hasn't stopped that-- the last we shared on here was a made-from-scratch (built the box) toy box (you should make one too)

and today- we made a chalkboard "tapestry" (for lack of a better word)
Basically- chalkboard cloth, two dowels and string.



just wanted to share!
(and if you're contemplating making one- i made 2 this morning with a toddler 'n newborn without neglecting them :P so it doesn't take much time!!!)

Nifty! I'm making a chalkboard soon. So stoked! I was gonna do a whole wall in chalkboard paint but decided to make the board instead for when we move eventually.

You're such a cool mom. Does the chalk erase from the fabric easily?
I used the chalkboard spray paint on a black board I had laying around the house, & it's so hard to erase :?

I know what you mean, I used that on a wall!



The chalk fabric is great, wipes right off :)
