Chalkboard-Before and After

Recently I posted about a some fun garage sale finds. One of them was an old chalkboard that I was excited about. I mentioned that I was going to fix it up and I promised that I'd post a picture of the finished product. Isn't finding something for super cheap and then fixing it up the funnest thing???
Before: The $5 Chalkboard
 I sanded it down and painted it with two coats of paint that we had on hand.
 After the paint.
 I wasn't crazy about how it looked with the bottom of it open so, I cut up a curtain that we weren't going to use and used it to fill in the open part. I secured it with thumb tacks. 
 After!
