Bathroom Chalk Board (from ceiling fan blades)




S
ometime ago I changed my ceiling fans and held on to all of my ceiling fan blades








Some of the blades were light




and some dark, but it didn't matter.




I had been reading so much about chalk boards, so I decided to experiment and came up with a lovely board for my son's guest bathroom.  I found the chalk paint recipe on line.


I used strips of sheer fabric (glued with hot glue) to hang the boards.



Of course, my son didn't find the the Bathroom Rules humorous





But I thought it was cute...

For the chalk holder I simply took a small styro cup




Cut it in half & painted it (I wanted it to look like a clay pot).




And then hot glued it to the board







It doesn't have to be bathroom rules, it can be anything, and I guess at some point someone, or I, will change it.






but for now it stands...







It's a New Year so don't forget to LET YOUR CREATIVITY FLOW!

This is very cute… Great idea to reuse the fan blade and the styrofoam cup is a perfect holder for the chalk.

This is wonderful, Sherry. The little painted cup looking like a terracotta pot is real genius!
