DIY Garage Door Scoreboard

Monday, August 25, 2014

Friday night we had some friends over after dinner. The guys played darts while the girls chit-chatted and watched our men act like boys.

I noticed the guys were keeping score on a cardboard box that we had laying around in the garage. I instantly thought how cool it would be if we converted the grungy garage door into a scoreboard with chalkboard paint.

So, Sunday after breakfast, church, and completing the ice bucket challenge, we cracked open the can of chalkboard paint and got to work. I got a little carried away and coated many other things in chalkboard paint, but you'll have to wait another day for me to reveal my other projects.

Chris was really happy with the way it turned out. He told me this was "the best DIY project idea to date!" Thanks, honey!

Other than this Sunday streak of painting, much of the weekend was spent laying around and preparing for the first day of school! Today is the day I meet all my cherubs and I am so excited!

How was your weekend?

  1. What a great idea! Keep this thought for the future :)

  2. Yay chalkboard paint! Isn't it so fun?!

  3. I love this idea! Really cool and I can see why your husband would think this is the best DIY project ever. I think my boyfriend would agree.

  4. This is seriously the best idea ever!

  5. I can't believe summer is over and everyone is headed back to school, crazy! Good luck today!

  6. How cute is this?! Love it!

  7. This is so fun to have!! I want to do a wall in our mudroom chalkboard...just haven't committed yet lol

  8. This is such a great idea, I love it! I might have to do something like this in our basement...we have a ping pong table and darts, so this would be perfect!

  9. I love this idea. I have been playing around with the idea of chalk board paint in my head for a while. My main concern was the dust. Having it in the garage is a great solution. I wonder how well it would hold up on the ground as far as driving over it every single day with a car.

  10. Awesome idea! We did this for our garage wall during football season. I would add that the chalkboard paint you usually buy at a craft store needs a couple layers before it works well. We tried using regular chalk at first but found out there are pens that work much better. I bet that should work.
