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.

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:
