To review: I had this piece left over from my sideboard turned kitchen island.
I’ve been craving a chalkboard in my kitchen for a long time. I was going to buy one, but one day I was staring at that leftover trim and a lightbulb went on in my brain. I could make a chalkboard. And so I got to work and over the next 3 or 4 days, I put it together, painted the frame, painted the chalkboard, aged the frame and ta-dah! Here it is!
Since the chalkboard is between a window and our side door, which also has a big window, it has been hard to get a photo. Wouldn’t you know it – the one day I want it to be cloudy in order to take a picture, the sun is shining away. The color of the frame is a bit more turquoise than indicated, but it is pretty accurate. The turquoise was so intense that I “antiqued” it this morning and I like it much better. The chalkboard has to be seasoned yet but I haven’t any chalk! My dog, Riley, hasn’t been feeling well at all, so I am staying home today. We’ve had a worrisome two days, but he seems to be getting better as the day goes on. I am very relieved!
Hope you like it. I promise more photos (with chalk) and the tutorial in the next day or two.
