My Chalkboard Project

The other day Lisa over at Living My Life, Outside The Box posted some cute chalk boards made from old frames.  I had to share.  Here is my chalkboard. I had spotted one in a decorating magazine and called my dad, "Can we make one of these?"  On his next visit we headed off to the home supply store.  In a couple of hours this is what we had.  I have the best dad.  It is not made from an old frame but a piece of masonite sprayed with chalkboard spray. The molding was glued directly onto the top.  I originally painted it red to hang in my kitchen but when we moved to ATL it got a good ol dose of black paint and a little distressing.  I love the way the old red paint peaks out in spots.  As you can see it is very loved.  We made it over 10 years ago.  It is still one of my favorite pieces.

Love it and it has to be one of the best ones that I have seen.
