I’ve finally done it.
I FINALLY HAVE A CHALKBOARD.
And it feels good.
The story starts ages ago. I bought a ginormo frame from Habitat for Humanity in February of 2010 for $3. It was gold-colored and a little rough. But, it was so darn big that I had to buy it. You should have seen me try to get this puppy home.
It didn’t QUITE fit in the Prius. But, it was $3 so I made it work.
And 20 months later, we made it into a chalkboard.
I painted the frame in the same color as the kitchen trim and Ryan attached a thin piece of plywood with chalkboard paint. He added hanging hardware and hung it on the wall. It was clearly twenty months worth of work here.
But, it fits perfectly on this wall in the kitchen. So, I’m a happy girl. I spent most of last night drawing with my chalkboard pens. (And because it inevitably will come up – I bought the chalkboard pens at Michael’s.)
I’m not planning to use it for anything productive. Just doodles and drawings and the occasional love note.
