Chalkboard Scoreboard

The boyfriend and I like to keep score with everything that we do.

(Games, proving the other person wrong, bets ... basically everything.)

Now, usually when I earn a point, I just draw an imaginary tally mark in the air with my finger. However, I tend to score quite a bit of points and lose count :)

I decided to make a little scoreboard as a cute little joke.

I bought this little piece of wood for like a dollar.

I painted the edges red and then painted the front side with 2 coats of chalkboard paint.

After painting, I rubbed chalk all over the board. I read somewhere that you are suppose to do that before using it. I don't really know if its true or not... but I did it.

I super glued two pieces of ribbon to the back of the board. I then glued a piece of card stock to cover the back and hid my messy painting skills.

I tied it at the top to hang up.

Using my Cricut and SCAL, I typed up both of our names and 2 lines.

I cut them out on white contact paper.

Then I placed them on the board.

Here's what it looks like hanging up. I'm winning of course :)

I think he will like it, until he realizes how much I better I am than him.

Haha, I kid, I kid! :)
