I found this blackboard at Goodwill. I thought it would be a good project to work on for my craft room but it was a mess.
It was framed with cork and had a metal chalkboard insert. I was going to spray it with chalkboard paint and call it a day but........
I started tearing into it!
I noticed the metal could be taken out so I ended up with this....
I still wanted to have a chalkboard but now I wanted to get creative with it.
I measured the metal and cut it in half with a paper cutter.
I used Krylon to paint the cork in an aqua color.
I bought a piece of square trim cut it down, painted and glued it to the middle covering the seam. I sprayed chalkboard paint to the non-metal side.
Then I found some pretty scrapbook paper and Mod-Podged it to the metal. I loved that it was magnetic so I could use my bird stamp magnets.
I still felt like there was something missing....
I love the way it looks like an old window. Then I thought I would add some old knobs. I painted them a mustard yellow and attached to the bottom of the cork.
Now it was ready to hang!
I love the organization! It is multi-functional!
I have a magnetic board, chalkboard, cork board and knobs to hang things on! I love the bright colors too!
GW Blackboard 5.99
Everything else I had and recycled!
Compared to whats out there this was not a bad price. Gotta Love being thrifty!http://www.whipperberry.com/">
