Giving an Old Chalkboard NEW Life

I know, I know….another chalk board. Chalkboards are like diamonds,
a gal can never have too many!

I picked this little lady up at GW for $4.99. I thought the price was a little high but I knew just the place for it and I we were in need of a menu board in our kitchen.

I pulled the picture off, gave it a new coat of chalk board
paint, and dressed her up with a littleAlign Leftbow.

I picked up some magnets at Home Depot and stuck them to the back. I knew it would get a lot of wear and tear so I outlined the back with magnetic strips so it has a lot of support.

Here she is all dressed up and looking good. She’s on the side our fridge. We don’t have a lot of wall space in the kitchen and I desperately wanted a menu board so I had to think outside the box. I have plenty of room to write and it even has a little chalk board tray at the bottom.
Love it!
