I saw this metal/chalk board creation a few years ago at Urban Barn and loved it. I had no use for it at the time, but it was on sale and couldn’t say no. I was thinking I could use it to put a small birthday present in, or keep keys in it by the front door. I hadn’t come up with the right thing to use it for, until I found these lovelies at a garage sale..
I have a chalk pen that is water proof which is perfect if these live outside for a few weeks!
I tried writing out “grow” on the chalk board with a pencil before I used the permanent chalk pen. You wouldn’t believe how awkward it was to write on. Good thing my sister was there to take over, she also has much prettier writing then me.
After that I followed over with the chalk, and did a design around the edges.
I placed a row of rocks along the bottom for extra water run off, even though they don’t like much water.
And that is the final product! Cute right?
