New Year’s Resolution Board

DIY stenciled new years

Making a list of healthy resolutions is a great way to start off the New Year. Throughout the year this chalkboard resolution board is the perfect way to keep up with your ever-changing goals! With just a few simple steps you will be on your way to reaching your dreams for years to come.

First we found a sign board that worked perfectly for this project. We made sure it was smooth so it would be easy to write on with chalk. You will need to apply multiple coats of chalkboard paint to the flat part of the board to ensure that the chalk is able to stick once written. We used a foam roller to apply the paint as this was the quickest and easiest way to cover the board.

After applying our chalkboard paint we painted the border of our surface a shimmery gold color to lighten up any room it is placed in! Next we aligned our custom stencil onto the chalk surface and used a white acrylic paint to make our text and lines really pop against the dark background. We made sure to leave a space for the year which can be changed as the board is used.

After everything was painted and dry we collectively came up with ten goals to accomplish for the New Year and wrote them down! We aim to complete and improve each of these goals throughout this coming year and hope that you join us! This is a great motivational project that only took a few hours to complete but will last for many years.
