I really wanted a chalkboard in my outdoor living area. I found the frame at an antique mall for $5 and got a piece of plywood cut to size at the lumber store. I had leftover chalkboard paint and spray paint from previous projects.
Once painted all I had to do was put it together.
We broke it in last Saturday putting the menu for the party on it.
My daughter is the artist in the family so I always have her do the writing and decorating. I just love it!
