you + me {DIY}

This is a simple DIY project that can be done during a kiddo's nap time or other short window of time & can add so much interest to a room or wall :)
Here's what you'll need:
Chalkboard paint- a pint is pricey but goes a LONG way. You will barely put a dint in the can with this project.
A good paint brush
3 wooden circles (Hobby Lobby & Michaels both sell these for super cheap!)
3M or other wall adhesive

Brush any dust or dirt off of your wooden panels, then paint with one coat of chalkboard paint.

Allow for drying & go over the panels once more with a second coat of paint. Dry thoroughly.

Take your piece of chalk & scrape it over the entire surface of the chalkboard panel.  This is a very important step!
Wipe the chalk away with a cloth or paper towel. This will give your panels a well worn look :)

Get creative & write a favorite quote, inspiring words or little phrase on your panels & viola!
Personally, I love a good ampersand & the simplicity of "you & me", but the possibilities are endless!
I think this would go great in a master bedroom, don't you?
What would your panels say?
