chalkboard clipboards {a guest post by haley}

Hi everyone! I'm Haley from Chapter Thirteen and I'm so excited to be guest posting here today! I'm going to show you how to do a simple little craft (above). These clipboards are great for decorating and displaying photos, inspiration, and quotes.

what you'll need:
-a clipboard
-chalkboard paint
-painters tape

I used chalkboard spray paint (bought at Walmart), but the brush-on kind would probably work too. 

{step one} Using your tape, cover up all metal on the clipboard. I painted one of mine only half-way. To do that place one strip of tape across the middle, then cover everything above it with tape.

{step two} Paint the clipboards with the chalkboard paint, then let them dry completely (I let mine dry overnight). 

{step three} After the paint dries, remove the tape.

{step four} Hang where you like and enjoy!

Thanks for having me, Francesca!
