I am so in love with the many chalkboards that are floating around the blogisphere.
Making one has been on my to do list for some time now. Yesterday was the day. I found an old frame in the garage that I had painted black, but the corners were separating. So I took a little wood filler and put it in the corners.
Then I took two different blues and mixed them together to get the color I wanted for the frame. Next, I dabbed just a tiny bit at a time onto my brush, and did a dry rub, leaving quite a bit of the black showing through.
Then I took some chalkboard paint and painted a piece of cardboard and attached it to the back.
Put it in a cookbook stand and, Viola! I too have a chalkboard! How fun and easy! Why in the world did I wait so long?
