Wood Pedestal Chalkboard

Wood Pedestal Chalkboard

In September I held a Make & Take where we made some Wood Recipe Holders. I absolutely loved them. So much that I wanted to make a bunch more and find all kinds of purposes for them. My head was just spinning with ideas. I decided that I wanted to turn one into a Wood Pedestal Chalkboard.

Here is a breakdown of all the pieces it took to make the pedestal. If you want even move info you can visit my post about making the Recipe Holders.

I painted the pedestal a beautiful aqua color using some craft paint I had on hand. I wanted to distress the paint and bring out some of the wood underneath, it kinda went with a whole beachy look that was happening!

I went back and forth between using chalkboard paint and chalkboard vinyl. In the end I decided on using the vinyl, the wood was pretty rough and I wanted the writing surface to be nice and smooth.

Once the paint was dry, I applied some satin clear coat for a little added protection. Then I cut the vinyl out to fit the front of the pedestal and applied it to the front.

The Wood Pedestal Chalkboard is so perfect for the kitchen! I am planning on making more in different colors because I love these so much! Wouldn’t they make great gifts, maybe even Mother’s Day gifts!!!

    Oh love this! I just might have to make one or more! 🙂

  2. Great project! Did you find all of the bit and pieces at a craft store? I may make one quickly for a Mother’s Day gift!!

    • I’ll break it down for ya:

      Plaque-any craft store in wood section
      Candlestick holder- Hobby Lobby in wood section
      Wood-Home Depot

      If you don’t have any of these stores around you, you can always substitute with other items that are available to you!

  3. This is so cute! I’m obsessed with anything chalkboard. 🙂

  4. Great idea!!
