I picked up this foot board at a garage sale. The seller was the man of the house who explained that his wife went off on a girl’s weekend and left him in charge of the garage sale! He had no idea why they had just a foot board, but his wife had stripped it and then never finished whatever project she had planned for it. So he was selling it. Cheap.
I was showing it to nnK, and she said “why don’t you turn it into another chalkboard?” Duh. Why didn’t I think of that? Brilliant idea.
So that is what I did. I painted the frame with a base coat of Sweetie Jane milk paint, followed by a top coat of MMSMP in Linen. Then I painted the inset part with chalkboard paint.
I added a couple of vintage hooks, and an upside-down cup pull to hold the chalk.
You will see this one at the sale, if you happen to be there!
