I’ve almost donated this chalkboard so many times. I’m happy I hung onto it. It’s served as a fun place to draw for my kids & now it’s quite the dashing entryway piece. It has built-in trays which are perfect not only for the chalk but also keys and change. We can leave each other messages or reminders on it and it has a slot to hold mail. I think I may end up adding a couple hooks to it as well.
Here’s this beast before:
& here’s our beautiful toddler drawings:
Aren’t they awesome?! ❤
We still had some of Country Chic Paint’s Lazy Linen left after completing a few projects with it. This paint seriously goes a long way. So I decided this chalkboard would be the perfect Saturday afternoon project!
Of course I had no tape left but made do with a cardstock barrier! ^_^
Here is my lovely looking chalkboard now:
This was SUCH an easy project. Country Chic’s paint is so good to work with. It coats so quickly, and dries so quickly. I had the whole thing done, distressed and hanging in no time.
I even got to practice my chalk writing skills after we were talking about all of the different options here.
It has these beautifully galvanised chalk holding trays built right in. I love this.
I really didn’t care for this chalkboard AT ALL before its makeover. It’s so very pretty now. ❤
I even shared a QUICK TIP for easy hanging on our Instagram:
