This is the ORIGINAL First Day of School Reusable chalkboard sold on Etsy! Why settle for a printable when you can have an actual chalkboard you can use year after year?

My Little Midge's First Day of School Chalkboard is a must-have for documenting your little one's growing independence each year...and it's reusable!

Each hand painted chalkboard is done on an 11x14" wood plaque with beveled edges and coated with chalkboard paint. I then use oil paints to personalize the sign with decorations, your child's name, and any questions you may want to ask them before their big debut into preschool, kindergarten, etc. (it is so fun to see their answers change as they grow!). All the paints I use are permanent-so all you have to do is write in the answers, date, and grade, and then erase it-and the painted part will not come off.

I can do different designs, different fonts, different colors-I will work with you to help you create the perfect chalkboard for your little one's special day.

*** You can add "LAST DAY OF" in coordinating colors/fonts with a reusable chalkboard on the back side as well for an additional $3. Just select the drop down box at the top of the listing. If "Front Only" is selected, the back will remain unpainted and all of the artwork will be on the front only. Please make sure that you let me know what you want on your board (front and back, if applicable) under "Message to Seller" during checkout. PLEASE BE AS SPECIFIC as possible when checking out-if you do not specify, the lettering style and colors will be as pictured in the main photo listing

Generally, my customers choose the following for their chalkboard:
(Name)'s First Day of
When I grow up, I want to be:
Favorite Color/Sport/Food:
*If you select "Front & Back," please let me know what you want on the back of the board (either "(Name)'s Last Day of" or "Last Day of"--up to 5 words. Any more will incur an additional fee).
(Also, please request any graphics you may want me to draw-an apple, bunting, colors to use, border style, handwriting style, etc.) Please remember that each piece is done from scratch, so if you want something on your board, just ask and I will do my very best to accommodate :)
