Outdoor Chalkboard

June 15, 2020 • #

Colette had this idea to build an outdoor chalkboard for the kids to use, hung on the fence. I went yesterday and bought some materials to put one together. I also found out in drawing up the plan that chalkboard paint exists, which is amazing. I’m not sure how exactly it works, but I bought some and we’ll find out.

It only requires some basic ingredients:

  • Cement backerboard (like you use for moisture-resistant surfaces)
  • 1x4 boards for frame
  • Adhesive
  • Lag screws for hanging

We’ll see how it works out. Should be pretty easy, and I know the kid will enjoy it!
