Chevron Skateboard

My 12 year old son Jake loves artsy projects almost as much as I do (and I couldn’t be prouder).  While I was making my bleached out chevron rug, he wanted to get in on the game.  He took an old skateboard of his and made a plan.

Plain Skateboard

He taped off a rough design with blue painters tape (no measuring needed) and laid it on old newspaper.

Grabbed the orange spray paint and sprayed away.

Patiently let it dry thoroughly (this was the tough part).

Pealed off the paint and went back to skateboarding.

Now he has a very cool skateboard that is unlike any other.

Great job Jake!

  • My 10 year old is the same way! Last summer we had fun using up left over cans of spray paint by painting a set of those ugly white plastic chairs you can get on the cheap. They had gotten all dirty looking and quite ugly, bu the time we finished with them we had quite the colorful set of chairs for the back yard! Austin (my kiddo) love spray paint just about as much as mommy! Thanks for sharing.
