Some friends recently let me have one of their real estate yard signs, and I had some fun transforming it into a chalkboard. Now I’m giving it away. Do you want it?
This piece is roughly 2’8″ wide and 2’x2″ high. It’s perfect for an office, bedroom, garage or wherever. Here is a quick video so you can better see the project since the photos don’t quite bring out all the color. Watch below (or here):
My Process: I split the post, removed graphics on one side, built the frame, used a distressed painting technique (which is why the frame looks older), and then glued the sign and frame together with Liquid Nails. I kept the reverse side intact to pay tribute to the original use. Thank you Brandy & Whitney of FAM Real Estate for letting me do this.
The Contest: This is open to anyone in the Sacramento area. It’s okay if we don’t know each other. As long as you live within 30-40 minutes or so of Downtown Sacramento, we can meet up near your work or home. Otherwise we can meet in public near Sacramento if you’re not local. If this goes over well and I build something again, I’ll be sure to make something smaller (easier to mail) and open up the contest nationally since I know many readers are out of state (thank you).
