Art Boards

Our "Art Boards" are saving my table.

These boards are underneath projects in several photos here, but I don't think I have ever mentioned them. I first got the idea for these boards from That Artist Woman. Then I casually mentioned them to my dad (who loves projects... and trips to Home Depot). Sure enough, the next time my parents visited he had a stack of them in the car for me.

The boards are made of masonite (think clipboard material). Home Depot and other such stores sell big sheets of it and will cut it for you (or your dad). I suggested duct tape for the rough edges, but dad sanded them... love him.

They are fabulous to have! These boards are perfect for sloppy projects that need a portable drying space (so we can eat dinner at the table). Great to take outside and sit in the grass and paint on. We will be using these boards for years!

Speaking of art projects, here are a few new fall projects we hope to do soon...


  1. I LOVE the fall trees! Aren't her ideas beautiful?? We may have to pack the paints and do this project in the Appalachian Mts. this weekend! Hopefully there will be enough color to inspire us!

  2. Art boards have been on my list, too. If you've got any extra, I'll just stop by after my race and pick them up:):):).

    LOVE the projects you have picked out. I hope to do a couple, too! Very fun. Oh, I so need more time in my day ...

    Blessings to you! And just out of curiosity, why is every blogger I know an Auburn fan??? SIGH ...

  3. Love the art boards....and the links you provided...thanks! :)
    Going to (somehow) make time to do a couple of these....my kids will esp. enjoy the leaf pictures! :)

  4. What a great idea! BTW I am awarding you a Sunshine blogger award.

  5. As always Jen - font of useful info!

  6. love this idea and it was very helpful. Home Depot here we come!

  7. What a great idea! We save large sturdy pieces of cardboard for this, but my little cardboard bandit always ends up stealing them for other creations. ;)
