Wooden Chalkboard Sign

A piece of scrap plywood can become a birthday sign that doubles as wall décor following this tutorial from Jaime at That’s My Letter.  The chalkboard finish makes this sign very versatile. Hang it for a party like Jaime did and then later add it a bedroom or playroom as wall décor. No doubt kids would love to change the message for tea parties, restaurant, and other pretend play.


Jaime was inspired by the Peter Rabbit Chalkboard Sign in Pottery Barn Kid’s Spring 2011 catalog.
