Chalkboard ‘Days Until’ Sign

With Summer just a mere 4 days away (the official first day of summer is June 21st, and it also happens to be my kids last day of school), we’ve been counting it down in style.

Perfect for a countdown to an upcoming birthday, anniversary, or an upcoming vacation.
This is such an easy project, I thought I’d just share the easy steps:

Cut Your board down to size:
-(I used a piece of scrap wood of my neighbors (isn’t she nice!?!)  It measured 9.25″ x 0.75″.  I cut it to be 36 inches long.
Sand it down with super fine sandpaper.
(after you’ve sanded it, wipe it down with a damp paper towl or cloth to remove all the dust, and then allow to dry.
Give it a coat of Primer
(Spray Paint is best)
Spray Paint evenly with Chalkboard Spray Paint
(2 coats, just to make sure you have good even coverage)
Cut white vinyl using your Cricut
( I used my newest cartridge called Type Candy Font…oh my gosh, I love it)
Attach saw-tooth picture hangers on the back (I used 1 on either side to keep it from tipping while I’m erasing and re-writing)
Adhere your vinyl, and start counting down the days!
