Chalk Board

I found several old window frames at a salvage yard in Charleston, SC.

They were already the prettiest shade of blue.  I cut out the screen and cut a board to fit the space.  I painted it with chalkboard paint, before I attached it with a heavy duty staple gun. 

The equestrian drawer pulls came from the Pottery Barn outlet and were left over from another project.  I turned them upside down and attached them to the window sill.

They are perfect for holding chalk! 

Thank you for stopping by!

What a great idea to use the drawer pulls to hold chalk! I am so on my way to the store to buy drawer pulls!

Hi Christie, I love this chalkboard. So cute and easy to do. I like the drawer pulls for holding the chalk. Great idea. Your vignette is sweet and says "Spring"! Blessings, Pamela

Beautiful!! What a clever idea!! I just made a chalkboard, though the frame is a little too thin at the moment, but I have dreams of a chunky frame... can't wait to add some pulls for all the chalk! I love it!!
And the peeps!

That is a very creative idea! I wanted to put up a chalk board area for a shopping list but haven't figured a good way/place for chalk. thanks!
