Just finished this chalkboard. It looks great hanging in our kitchen. More on the kitchen in a different post. We have done a lot to it, but for now I will just talk about this chalkboard. I made it myself using chalkboard paint and an old painting I bought from a garage sale. The painting was a copy; one of those cheap reproductions printed on some sort of thin plywood or something. So it wasn't anything valuable. At least I hope not. Anyway, I covered it in two coats of chalkboard paint and sanded the frame to add some character, et voilà! A beautiful piece to write notes, scriptures, or this weeks menu!
