Awhile ago I purchased this cabinet door for $2.50 ~ not know quite what I was going to do with it, but knowing I would make it into something.
I decided to make a welcome/message sign for my front entry.
First I sanded it and primed it (probably wasn't necessary, but I did anyway).
Then I sprayed the whole thing with 3 coats of chalkboard paint.
Once that was completely dry (or maybe a couple of days later when I got back to it ☺) I painted the outside edge red.
I "seasoned" it ~ not by dumping salt and pepper over it either ☺~ you know rubbing chalk all over it and then wiping it all off ~
Stapled some twine to the back and hung it by my front door.
I had intended to hang it by a 3M hook ~ but it seems those little babies don't stick to my lovely vinyl siding ~ So I made my twine hanger longer and hung it around our light.
I have to say, I love it!!!
and for Halloween:
