Look What I Made

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!

    1. Hi Amanda, yes super easy. The hardest part was actually finding a cheap frame, there are not many antique/junk stores around me.
