Funky Blackboards

I decided I needed some chalkboards to stick outside the knitting tent to attract people wanting to learn. We looked on the internet and were outraged at the cost of decent ones - some were over £100 !!!

Once again Welshy's talent for making things saved the day. He got some timber and constructed a basic frame.

He then decided to jazz them up a bit with his coloured wood dyes.

He then painted some hardboards we had with blackboard paint, sprinkled the frames with some glitter and tiny shiny stars and here they are

I think you'll all agree that they are fantastic and unique. So remember to call in and say hello if ever you see them outside of a tent.

  1. Love these : )

    How much more exciting would school have seemed with such funky blackboards? (No interactive pc-linked whiteboards back then - feeling my age now!)
