Cabinet Door Chalkboard

What do you do when you find just one cabinet door with no hardware attached??

You make a chalkboard of course!



This was really a simple project to complete. The door had a natural frame already so I just painted the inside with chalkboard paint.



I also found a new way to add some character to the wood by the way of a torch.

 LOOK OUT, cause I'm loving using it and the way it turns the wood into a burnt look.


To complete the door Mike used a metal chair leg cut to size and created a cup for the chalk.

I then simply bolted it through the hole that was already there. I  just added a metal strip to the back for hanging. OOPS  I forgot to take a picture of the back but you get the idea.



I really had no where to hang it inside so here it is outside om my fence. I didn't even notice that part of it was green until NOW, putting the pictures in.


Here it is propped up on our Chili's table. Yes we do need beer! 



A closer look at the burnt wood sides.



Well there you have it. A simple project that only took about an hour, except waiting for the paint to dry.


Hope everyone is having a wonderful, creative weekend.
Thanks for stopping by.

    1. Hey Jenna, Thanks for visiting. I like added a little something different to hold the chalk, and this door already had the perfect hole in it.

  8. Love it! We just did something similar on one of our cabinets, but had to build a frame to go around it. I love the idea of making it within an existing frame!
