When Aaron and I first got married, we inherited a bedroom suite from his parents. It included a bed, dresser and mirror. Over the years, we moved up from that full bed to a queen and then to our current king. The mirror continued to hang on our wall. Then, the mirror broke at some point. We stuck it out in our shed.
I thought a chalkboard would be perfect in the short hall leading to the nursery. Then, I remembered that broken mirrror. I decided I would try to remake the mirror into a chalkboard. This was my first attempt at a furniture "makeover". I painted the frame white (it was an oak color, before). Then, I just painted the cardboard insert with several layers of chalkboard paint. A perfect chalkboard!
I added a few buckets from the dollar spot at Target to hold the chalk. A perfect place to be creative!
