Hi there from North Carolina! We made it back yesterday afternoon. Flying with two young children was a little exhausting. 😉 We had wonderful time with my family. Thank you for all your sweet words about my grandmother.
He loves to display his paintings and drawings but they get ruined with tape. I loved the idea of an interchangeable art display with clipboards so I ordered three inexpensive ones from amazon and transformed them!
Here’s what I used:
Left over spray paint and interior paint from my stash. 😉
Pack of three clipboards
Step 1: Paint the clipboards white with spray paint or paint and sponge brush. Don’t worry about the hardware. (Acrylic or any craft paint is fine.)
Step 2: Place painter’s tape under the clip then tape around the rest of the hardware and board.
Step 3: Spray paint the hardware with an enamel paint for a heavy duty finish. I used rust-oleum’s specialty farm equipment enamel in yellow. (It will take a few days to completely dry and cure.)
Step 4: While the enamel is drying, tape out an area for an accent stripe. You can use painter’s tape to create a straight line. To prevent over spray, place a piece of cardboard below the clip. (Again, acrylic or any paint finish works well on cork-board.)
Step 5: After the paint on the clip has dried a few hours, carefully open the clip with one hand and cut the paint from the clipboard with a box knife. This will prevent paint from peeling off when you use the clipboard the first time.
Step 6: Follow previous steps for the 2nd and third clipboards, adjusting your accent line.
