DIY Chalkboard Effect Table Numbers
If you need help just shoot me an email, I’d be happy to give you whatever advice I can. 🙂
Dowel (dowel needs to be around half the depth of the wood. Mine is 6mm)
Matt black spray paint
Cut your wood to size. My pieces are 65mm heigh. (65x89mm)
Give the edges of your blocks a light sand to get rid of any rough edges.
Find the center of your block with a ruler and mark it with a pencil.
Clamp your wood so that it stands up right.
Drill a hole down the wood a few cm deep.
Make sure all of the edges are covered and the masking tape is pressed down firmly. Any loose bits will allow paint to go underneath and you will end up with a messy edge.
What do you think? Want to give it a try? I’d love to see your finished pieces if you do!
If you’re not so keen to DIY these pretties yourself I do have a listing for them in my etsy store.
Honesty time. They are not the cheapest piece in my collection but they are quite time consuming so unfortunately I do need to charge more than some of the simpler pieces.
See these pretties in the Makes Two Weddings Etsy store.
