Playroom gallery wall {gallery wall tips}

Anybody else totally overwhelmed by fall school schedules and sports?  I sure am!  Wish I could spray paint on the sidelines at soccer practice but my kids think that would be embarrassing.  So I've been trying to sneak some time between carpools and lunch making to do some crafts.

The playroom is just about done.  Our new playroom has one big wall for art instead of the two smaller ones in the old playroom so I had to redo some and add some more pictures.

Here it is all finished!

Playroom Chalkboard...

My kids LOVE a chalkboard.  Instant place to color!  I knew I wanted one in the playroom.  I also knew I wanted it big and CHEAP.  I like cheap.  So I went the DIY route.  Which at my house isn't really DIY.  It's more HYHDI (Have your husband do it).  But I painted and accessorized so I get credit too.

I think the whole chalkboard came to about $20 to $30 including the paint and liquid nails that we can still use on other projects.  We bought a sheet of hardboard (some people call it masonite) for about $10.  Then cut it down to 5'x3'.  Then bought regular molding for the sides that was about $15.  After cutting the hardboard I painted it with a few coats of chalkboard paint and then my husband miter cut the molding and used liquid nails to attach it the hardboard.  Some touch up paint and Wa-La.  Fun chalkboard.

Here is a great tutorial on how to cut molding if you want to DIY: Miter Cutting molding
