Furniture Friday - DIY Chalkboard

Welcome back to another installment of Furniture Friday

Don't worry if you are a fan of my Scottish cooking, there is plenty more cooking and baking coming your way very soon

But first I want to share with you this adorable chalkboard





it started off life as an old dusty and very large wood picture frame that had seen better days



Oh and my favorite part of the Chalkboard story, my neighbors picked it up from the side of the road for me, which happens to be one of my favorite pastimes also, yeah I am partial to a bit of sidewalk treasure hunting myself

So first off, what to do with it? Frame a picture or canvas? Frame a mirror? No lets make a Chalkboard

Here is how it turned out

with a bit of fixing up and some well needed paint and a bit of love, it was ready to relive another day

Isn't it beautiful

I think so
