Chalkboard Crazy


It's been a busy week around here. It seems like I have about 10 projects started and only a few completely finished but I have managed to complete a few chalkboards in the past few weeks.

I simply love making them and they are great sellers wherever we go. We acquired a few cabinet doors from a friend remodeling their kitchen, they of course are perfect for chalkboards.




I painted this one to be horizontal and Melissa did one vertical.






They had the perfect cut-out for the chalkboard and even a ledge for the chalk.






They did have a space that was a hole that needed to be covered, I used painted lids from Starbucks Iced Coffees. The bottles will be in a future post.

Melissa covered hers with a metal palm tree and a VW van to give it a beachy feel. 






Another easy chalkboard was made using a gold frame, you know the ones...



First a coat of flat black paint and primer.


Then I used Valspar Color Radiance. It worked great!



For the chalkboard part I just painted the glass that was in the frame. A little distressing and you have a very stylish chalkboard. 






I also found a prior chalkboard that I did some time ago. It was one that got packed away and forgot about. I'm glad I did some cleaning and found it.

By combining 3 frames and wine corks another chalkboard was done.




I only did a little distressing on the frames and love this cork with words to live by.






One of my favorite chalkboard is a wall that I painted awhile back. It is between my family room and kitchen. The perfect place for notes and memos. 



Some other past chalkboard projects include a child's table, a burnt wood cabinet door, and one that was large and in charge

Just a few of my ideas on CHALKBOARDS.

And if you have a chalkboard to share I would love to pin it.
