Chore Board


Here's one of my latest projects.  My kids are finally getting old enough, that I decided they needed to start helping out around the house.  At first, they were so excited.  They'd come running down every morning, like it was Christmas, to check out what their chores were for the day.  Unfortunately, it's already worn off.  But, at least I tried.  As far as making the board, the wood actually used to be a surf picture in my son's bedroom, which we weren't using anymore.  I started out by painting the whole thing cream.  After it was all dry, I found some letter stickers that I applied where I wanted them.  Then painted the whole thing black.  Again, after waiting for it to dry, I pulled off the stickers, leaving the cream to show.  I always like to sand everything down really good, I love the aged look!  After adding my hooks,  the kids went to work!
