Cost Plus World Market Chalkboard paint knockoff

So the other day, while sorting through my scrap pile looking for wood to build an outdoor rustic shelf, I found a piece of scrap wood that I had used to test a “gray wash” stain. I sampled so many finishes before finally committing to Rustoleum’s Early American for my farmhouse table.

Immediately, I knew this was the piece for a chalkboard beach sign. If you missed my earlier post, check it out here: {{posted on Weekend Knockoff #1}}

I just love this Cost Plus World Market “Beach” Sign made with chalkboard paint.

Cost Plus Chalkboard Direction Sign $12.99

This sign is truly inexpensive, but again NOT FREE!!

I made my version with supplies I already had. I promise I didn’t go to the store for anything!! I even dug through every outdoor toy box to find a piece of chalk to write with :-)

I cut this piece of scrap wood at a 45 degree angles to make an arrow shape, taped off the edges with 1 inch painters tape and painted the center with Rustoleum Chalkboard Paint.

I touched up the stain minimally and attached the Jute rope to the back with a staple gun.

Here are a few more shots:

It’s amazing how many places you can hide toys while still attempting to be stylish!!

A great rustic beach sign that is versatile. You can use it for any message you want, use it for notes on your front door…the possibilities are endless. if you have any chalkboard paint projects, please share them here with links in the comments below.

Happy Saturday!! Just a quick weekend knockoff today, because we are off to the beach!! YAY!

Last week I shared this candle holder from Cost Plus World Market with you:

Cost Plus $9.99-14.99
Cost Plus $9.99-14.99

And then later that week shared my own version, DIY for $2. Do you like the polished look of the CP version or the rustic authentic look of my version? I am a little biased, but I love mine :-).

This week I was inspired by this burlap wall hanging from Pottery Barn, burlap is inexpensive and I already have a bunch just waiting for a project like this. A little fabric paint and voila! Just in time for the Holiday. This is a great last minute craft (and easy to store too!)

 I just love these vases with rope. The added texture of the rope is such a fun idea to dress up a thrift store vase!!

And last but not least, I just LOVE these painted oars. I saw a bunch of old oars at a vintage shop a few months ago and I passed them by. I should know better, but now I have a perfect idea and will keep my eyes open for more. Thrifty Décor Chick painted an oar for her bathroom!! So cute, check it out!
