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. 


  1. That chalkboard has such character! Imagine the stories it could tell,,,Love to renew, reuse, and recycle. What an awesome lesson to be teaching your children :)

  2. I love all your creative personal and loving projects.
    thank you!! XXX


Thank you for your comments. I read every single one of them and they always make me smile.
