This was a fuckton of work, but I did it! My dad made the base, and I used an old bench that was falling apart in our backyard for the directional signs. I even painted them the same colors b/c this is so cute. I used Wonderland, Oz, Hogwarts, Avonlea, District 12, Narnia, and The Shire. It's now in my classroom reading nook.

Old Headboard Painted with Chalk board Paint - Oh, wow. I kick myself sometimes for not thinking of this stuff. I'd use a headboard to mount our house numbers on it. Hmm.
I like the idea. This sign could be recreated using salvaged wood and left over paint-or check the hardware store for reject paints in soft blues, greens, or greys. Once painted the signm could be sanded down for wear.
