Recycled Craft Room Decorating Ideas

Custom Chalk Board

Over at Green Upgrader, you can check out my tutorial for turning an ugly painting from the side of the road into a handy chalkboard sign for making paper-free lists! My initial plan was to use this in my booth at markets, but the painting I found is way too heavy to cart from show to show. This chalk board is going to live in my studio instead.

Even the small can of chalkboard paint is more than you’ll need for this project, so here are some other crafty chalkboard paint projects to use up the rest!

Do you have any other recycled craft room decor ideas? I’d love to hear suggestions in the comments!
