Yay! It's the weekend! I am trying so hard to get back into crafting, decorating and blogging. The gray, cold weather isn't helping me feel motivated at all.
One of the projects I've wanted to do involves this mirror . . .
Handyman Hubby made this in high school. He wanted to get rid of it a long time ago but I kept it. It has been sitting in our basement for the past 15 years and I never knew what to do with it. Seriously. Fifteen years!
I knew it could be turned into something great but what? I love the shape but the orangey wood? not.so.much. After searching some of my favorite blogs and Pinterest I came up with this idea . . .
A menu chalkboard for my kitchen!
This was such an easy (and free!) project. I just removed the mirror, painted the frame a pretty aqua/blue, painted the mirror with chalkboard paint and that was it!
Wouldn't you know that my white chalk pen ran out of ink! I was only able to write the word "menu" before the ink was gone. Rats!
Here is the new chalkboard hanging in my kitchen. I moved my Keurig and k-cups over to this counter and created a coffee/drink station.
I love having special pieces like this in my home. They may not be worth much to anyone else but to me they are treasures.
Have an awesome weekend!
