Trying out the painted furniture…I felt it still looked a bit bare and really needed a couple of pieces to bring it to life. So I decided to make a dartboard (coz what’s a pub without a dartboard), and a noticeboard so everyone can catch up with the latest news while they’re enjoying a pint.

Part 16

First up is the dartboard. I gathered scrap pieces of cardboard and 3mm foam, together with a cardboard tube that was the right size to use as a template, a knife, pen & ruler.

Part 16

Pieces cut out – the foam dartboard is a 3cm circle and the cardboard (blackboard) is just under 5cm x 4cm so that it fits between the wooden beams in the corner of the room.

Part 16

I then Googled a dartboard template. I re-sized the image to fit the size of the foam circle and printed it out. After placing the cut out template on top of the foam I carefully traced the design with my pen so that it would leave an impression of it on the foam for me to work from.

Part 16

Wearing my head-magnifier I got to work painting the dartboard.

Part 16

All painted & left to dry…The blackboard was painted black with a couple of white lines added as the scoring section. I was really pleased to have managed to paint the numbers around the outside of the dartboard, the foam is textured so it wasn’t easy to get a smooth line.
