"Days Until" Chalkboard
Here is a variation on the usual framed chalkboard that I've done (mentioned in my last Crafty Girls post). This one was made from a piece of wood. I attached a sawtooth picture hanger thingy on the back and a drawer pull on the front (to hold the chalk). My stencil was made by printing up the phrase in a very large font on my computer and cutting it out with an exacto knife. When the paint was dry, I traced the stencil on the board in pencil and then painted it. It now hangs proudly outside the door near my office. I need those reminders to get things done!!

|After painting the board black, trace the stencil with a pencil (hey that rhymes!) then paint with ivory!|
