Hi y'all, it's me, that girl katie, Since making this CHALKBOARD EASEL, I have used it for 2 parties we hosted (blog entries on parties coming soon). I also used it to write the school year for my kids to stand in front of on their 1st day.
It's been worth the DIY time it took to complete.
A special thanks to, ourvintagehomelove.blogspot.com where I got the idea and followed their tutorial.
I hope you give it a try.
