How cool is this??

I purchased this chalkboard paint about six months ago and have been meaning to make up a few for the store . . . so many ideas, so little time, right?

Well, I just turned this adorable old cabinet door into a chalkboard!! Isn't this just the neatest thing ever? There are imperfections of course because the door is so old but I love the old look . . . now everything I look at has chalkboard possibilities!

This is a great idea! They should do well in your store.

I might have to try this, also.

Really wonderful idea. I have a large old chalk board and use it all the time. Everyone should have one, now they can. Clarice

Dawn, Try painting old 9 by 13 baking pans with it, they turn out great. I have several of those I have done. And you have a lip for the chalk when you use baking pans.
I love the way your stuff turned out. And thank you so much for your encouragement. love nita

Clever Idea! I found your site from "notes from a cottage industry" I'll have to give the chalkboard/old cabinet door technique a whirl!

So cool! I love chalkboard painted stuff. I bet you're gonna come up with a bunch of great new projects! Turns out that we probably won't be going in to the shop on Saturday, so it works out since you won't be there then. But maybe I'll see you later in the week. xoxo
