House Rules Chalkboard

Good morning!  I am just getting back from Chicago this past weekend where I spent quality time with some good friends.  We enjoyed a bit of shopping, eating yummy food, and had some good 'ole belly laughs:)  It's always super fun to go but always fun to come home to your family:)

I bought this large board from a flea market this past fall for a few bucks.  I thought it would be a perfect size for either a sign or chalkboard.  I decided on creating a chalkboard out of it.

So, I gave it a coat of Kilz primer and then a few coats of a light green color.  I painted the inside of the board with chalkboard paint.  I then took a bit of black paint and gave it a distressed look around the edges.  Lastly, a few hooks were added to the bottom.

It now resides in the Shabby Gals booth space waiting for a new home:)  I added a few "fun" house rules to it.  I hope you have a beautiful day and if you're reading...ThAnKs!
