DIY Chalkboard Clock

Who doesn’t love a good chalkboard project? I’m finally adding a bit into my home and it’s just the touch that I’ve been looking for.

The other day I spotted this Chalkboard Clock over at Crate & Barrel and I fell in love with it. I thought it would be really fun to make one for my daughter’s room to help her know when it’s time for a nap and time for a snack. So instead of spending $60, I spent $20 and made a DIY Chalkboard Clock myself! And it can easily be done in TWO STEPS!

Start by painting the surface with chalkboard paint. Two coats should be plenty.

After it dries, install the clock kit. Make sure to buy the kit that matches the width of your wood. I made this mistake the first time!

Note: I decided that I wanted longer clock hands than what came in the kit, so I spent $3 more to buy larger hands and then I painted them Annie Sloan Duck Egg Blue for a little accent color!
