My printer printed the chalkboard background kind of funky, even though I had just changed the ink cartridges recently, but I still think they look great!
Faux Chalkboard Medallion Labels
Project: playroom is in full swing, and I’ve been organizing and decorating like crazy! The kid’s toys were overflowing out of toy boxes and into every part of the house, so it was definitely time to get things in order! Last week I showed you the perfect toy storage solution I found for their playroom:
I hope it gave you some great organizing ideas! Did you notice the cute little faux chalkboard medallion labels I made for the drawers?
Well today I’m going to show you how I made them!
I started by picking up 2 inch wood medallions from Hobby Lobby.
I drilled a small hole through the top center of each circle.
Next I painted the sides and backs of my circles white. While I waited for the paint to dry, I created these chalkboard style labels in Microsoft Word using a great tutorial from How to Nest for Less:
I printed the labels out on cardstock, cut them out, and glued them onto the wooden circles, trimming any excess paper off the edges. I used a craft knife to poke a hole through the paper where I drilled into the wood. Then I applied a layer of Mod Podge over the front and sides of the circles to give them extra durability.
Then I attached the chalkboard labels to the drawers with twine, and showed the boys exactly where all their toys go!
I just love the way they turned out! It makes cleaning up so easy for the kids, and they look adorable against the bright green and blue drawers!
