Make Your Own Chalkboard

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!
