The clipboards disassemble easily with a screwdriver for painting, staining, mod-podging and what not. Just take off the hardware and get creative!
I wanted a “little professor” vibe in their room so decided to simply stain the clipboards dark walnut to match their two-tone dressers. (So sorry for the crappy photos. I was using my phone late at night to take these.)
I used a foam brush to coat each clipboard with one coat of stain and let them dry overnight.
In the morning, I created and printed out (on photo paper) some periodic elements based on poster art from Restoration Hardware Baby. I put the clipboards back together, cut out my art, and hung them on the back of my kiddos’ door!
