In my opinion anyway.
It is no secret that I have a thing for chalkboards. They are part of my own home as well as a big seller down at my shop. The chalkboard in my kitchen is a permanent fixture.
I do not think I will ever change it. I made this one out of a cabinet door I found a Habitat Restore for a buck.
Now the one over our fireplace changes the most often, probably 4-5 times per year. It is an actual chalkboard, nothing I McGyvered together. Not that I’m above it my ANY means.
Lastly, this chalkboard on the front porch WAS McGyvered together. I was walking down the back hall at my Day Job one afternoon and noticed a pile of picture frames in with our cardboard ment for recycling. Long story short, all eight of them came home with me. This one became a chalkboard for our front porch.
I’m under the perpetual delusion that ANYTHING can be turned in to a chalkboard.
Today’s case in point:
I found these two wooden boards at my local Goodwill. Let’s start with that pig cutting board.
It had me at the price tag.
I dug $1 out if the bottom of my purse in change. I thought the shape would be fun for a kitchen chalkboard. Two coats of Rustoleum black chalkboard paint later and here’s how it came out:
I love that little tail. And I love what fun this is in a kitchen for a buck! You can not beat that.
No math involved.
No Rocket Science here either. Just $1 and a couple of brushfuls of paint.
I see boards like these quite often when I’m out hitting my favorite Thriftshops, always for just a few dollars. The possibilities are endless!
