Rustic wood slabs turned chalkboards

Walking into The Makery in Downtown Los Altos is like walking into Target.  I come in with a plan, but I always leave with much more than was written on my list.  I went in for washi tape and party bags for a baby shower I’m throwing next week, but left with much more!

I strolled by these kits, and knew they had to come home with me!

I got one for Alice and one for Patrick.  They contain a rustic wood slab, a great quality paintbrush, and a piece of chalk.  I love how it comes in a glassine bag with washi tape – the devil is in the details.  P.S. I have never seen equation washi tape before – gotta find this for the hubby!!

They also sell chalkboard paint and since I was in a rush, I grabbed the basic charcoal color since I wasn’t sure if I could decide on a color that both Patrick and Alice would like.

The paint goes on easy and smooth, and I love the wood.  It’s a thick cut and very sturdy.

Now to let this dry, add a few more coats, and let the kids create!  The Makery also sells rainbow chalk, so I picked up one for each kiddo.

I can’t wait to see what they create on their boards!
