One day, while roaming the aisles of Ikea, I came across this huge hanging canvas.
I loved the size and saw major project potential! The price tag of $19.99 was even more appealing so in my cart it went! I am not going to lie...it sat in the "project pile" for months until one night I broke out the chalkboard paint and made this.... (Ignore my chalk art...I was in a hurry!)
I ended up doing about 4 coats to cover the entire design, but it went pretty quickly! I painted the wood rods a medium gray color and lightly sanded them for a distressed look. I even painted the twine that it hangs from and gave it a once over with the sand paper!
I am pretty pleased with this $20 project! It is hanging on the wall in my daughter's play area...and is the first piece to start a little makeover in that area! I have a lot to do but I look forward to sharing it with you as I go!
I believe this particular item has been discontinued, but I did find a similar piece if you are interested in making you own canvas chalkboard!

I will be back tomorrow with another Break the Bank vs. Cheapskate post...and this one is a good one! Enjoy your day!
