{Wooden Calendar Board turned Chalkboard}

I found one of these at the thrift store for $2 and automatically knew 
I want to make a chalk board  for my kitchen.

First I removed the board. And since there was a space between the board and the frame (for the calendar to slide down into) I took the board outside and used a skill saw to cut it down so it would fit right up against the frame.

 2 coats of chalk board paint....

Spray painted the frame white....

 Nice clean look...

 Bought a pack of 2 of these for like $3 at Home Depot...Spray painted this as well...

 Elmers Glue

Do you like chalk board paint? What projects have you completed with it?
