I've finally got a garden :clapping: so looking for a blackboard to go outside on the fence if anyone know's where to get one from?

Can you use a large piece of board covered in blackboard paint? Then if it gets mucky/damaged, you can just stick another coat of paint on it rather than replacing it?

I've got painted blackboards in my garden, can't wait to get it finished and registered!

i nailed a bit of tarpoliong above it to cover when it rains I just drop it down and but a couple brick on then roll it up and tie it up when we use it.
In the winter I un screw it and take it off :)

TTS have a nice selection of shaped blackboards if you're looking for something a bit more 'arty' than a simple sheet of board. x

I've just had DH make me a big one with plywood and blackboard paint. The kids absolutely love it - it's stuck to my wall under my living room window and fills up a really un-used space. Cheap as chips to make too!

I have cut the actual blackboard bit from an old easel (50p at car boot) and hung from fence.

I have an old easel in the garden which the children use. Although they love to chalk all over the toys and Patio :angry:

They also love to tip all the chalks into the back of the coupe car I have and under the seats of the small sit ons. :angry: and then they go soggy because I havent relised they are in there.

I hate picking chalks up. I dont like the feel of them.:panic:
