Country Kitchen Chalkboard

 Great Slate Chalkboard Paint by Disney/Glidden

and other supplies to try out for another project : )

the hardboard I used

It took me a few years to actually put this beautiful solid wood frame to use.
Early one morning while driving my daughter to school I passed the local Antique dealer in town and noticed a frame sticking out of his garbage bin. We were already running late so I didn't have the time to pull over and pick it up.
During the 15 minute drive to school I was hoping the garbage truck wasn't going to beat me to it. By the time I returned to town I could still see the picture frame sticking out of the garbage, no garbage truck had come and no one had bothered to stop, lucky me!
But when I went to pick the frame out of the garbage I got a double surprise, I found a beautiful Venetian mirror with gorgeous carved roses. Both finds had their imperfections. The frame had old mildew fabric edging I removed and the mirror had a wood rose missing which in time I plan to refurbish. Love discovering old discarded antiques especially freebies and turning them into something special and useful.

I painted the hardboard with three coats of the Disney Great Slate Chalkboard Paint and then framed it in the gorgeous Gold Antique Wood Frame I found in the trash and refurbished.
Now all I have to do is wait 7 days before I write on my Country Kitchen Chalkboard. I am thinking of painting something on it but not sure what. I do have a week to figure it out : )

Love my One of Kind Country Kitchen Chalkboard and I can't wait to write on it.
