This design project for a Charming Country DIY Welcome Sign can be stretched by use of imagination. Any piece of wood can be used so it does not have to be "country" but modern and used as a memo board. This would be a great asset at my computer desk when I need to jot down something and only need it a while.

I completed a few projects with the chalkboard paint and I have a little left in the container. I think I will make these and give them as gifts to the teachers at the elementary school that I volunteer at. The teachers could use this in the classroom or at home.
