2. Paint until the log slice is completely covered and put your feet up with a cup of tea whilst you wait for it to dry! You can even have a look at the latest Modern Gardens magazine for free

Top tip!

Wipe your chalkboard clean with a damp cloth and re-use again and again! Why not use yours to direct guests to the drinks area, what's on the menu or even point people in the direction of the loo!
