Turn An Old Headboard Into A Chalkboard Sign

Make sure you like Homestead and Survival on Facebook to be updated every time we find a tutorial for innovative ways you can become self-sufficient on a budget.


Balancing Beauty & Bedlam came up with this awesome design, turning an old headboard into a welcome sign on their property. We love it as an outdoor sign board, and yet think it could have other practical purposes on a variety of homesteads. It’s a great way to: name your garden your or your property, issue a special greeting, reveal whether you’re open or closed for business, list a restaurant menu, and commemorate a special occasion.

You can use oil and latex paint as in this tutorial, but also you can opt for a deck paint that will last for years outside, and especially if part of the sign is buried in the ground.

Overall, this DIY project is relatively easy, and kids can help with the painting. Makes for good family fun!
