Turn A Battered Board Book Into A Cool Chalkboard

Turn A Battered Board Book Into A Cool Chalkboard

Do you have a board book laying around your house that's seen better days? Perhaps it has been colored in, spilled on, torn or Elmo's face is straight up gone. We all have one or two and although the idea of using a book as a craft project can make a librarian weak in the knees, we're all for this creative chalkboard project. Want to see what this book looks like now?

With a little sanding and base coating, this old board book was ready to take coats of chalkboard spray paint. It's a fun way to get the chalkboard look and feel without committing to coating an entire wall or piece of furniture.

Check out all the details to make this project yourself over at Whip Up.
